Call Me Different, Not Difficult
Robison, John Elder
Educational Leadership, v70 n2 p40-43 Oct 2012
When the author was asked to write an article for this issue about teaching kids with autism, he thought, who better to tell that tale than him? He grew up with undiagnosed autism in the 1960s, so he has a first-person understanding of what it's like. He has also raised a child with Asperger syndrome, so he has seen autism from the parent's point of view. He jumped at the chance to offer his ideas in the hope that tomorrow's teachers may have more success than the ones who tried to educate him and his son. In this article, he shares strategies teachers can use to help their students on the autism spectrum grow.
