Back to Basics: Working with Young Children with Autism in Inclusive Classrooms
Deris, Aaron R.; Di Carlo, Cynthia F.
Support for Learning, v28 n2 p52-56 May 2013
Young children with autism benefit from various adaptations made to an early childhood classroom. This article includes modifications for both teacher-directed and child-initiated activities. Adaptations are given for the classroom environment, daily schedule, sensory needs, transitions and general teaching strategies. The techniques described are especially important when working with young children with autism, but are also helpful for all young children. The information provided is gained from several years of experience working with young children with autism in schools, homes and childcare.
