The unique challenges presented by children with autism can quickly overwhelm unprepared teachers. Educators need direction on how to begin to understand and address the behavioral problems and social communication needs of children with autism. They require practical techniques that can be incorporated during naturally occurring instructional activities throughout their school day. This article seeks to provide teachers with practical, evidence-based approaches to help the growing population of children with autism meet the challenges they face within the school environment.
