Cayce, Robin M.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
This study addressed the effects of Project APPLE, an intervention created by the researcher and supported by the Guide to Project APPLE, a handbook which provided research-based teaching strategies, modificaitons to the learning environment, and transitional supports for students with ASD, and the teachers with whom their care and education is entrusted. Specific teaching strategies addressed academic challenges, while modifications to the learning environment aimed to support behavioral challenges. Transitional tools were provided to allow educators to proactively plan for the stress of transitions throughout the school day. Focused professional development sessions empowered educators and sought to increase their self-confidence in the ability to effectively accommodate students with autism spectrum disorder.
