Teaching Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Technology, Curriculum, and Common Sense
Ennis-Cole, Demetria
Journal on Educational Psychology, v5 n3 p52-62 Nov 2011-Jan 2012
Autism is a spectrum of disorders which comprises Asperger's Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Delay-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS), Rett's Syndrome, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, and Autistic Disorder. It affects 1 in 110 children (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, [CDC], 2011), and it is a complex neurological disorder that is characterized by impairments in communication/language, behavior, and social interaction. The individual with ASD may have mild to severe impairments in one or more of the areas listed above. This makes it difficult to meet their needs, and it provides educational challenges. This manuscript explores the role of technology, curriculum development, and common sense in educational planning for individuals in the spectrum.
