Bice, Hope
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p114-131 Fall 2009
The following article examines how behavioral interventions used in the general education classroom effect students with autism. The number of students with autism has increased significantly in the past 10 years. Teachers are now faced with providing instruction in inclusive settings within the general education classroom environment. Teachers need to have relevant and important strategies to decrease inappropriate, as well as, increase appropriate behaviors for students with autism to be successful in the general education classroom. The following project was conducted in the spring of 2009 at Springville Elementary School in Springville, Alabama. It focused on three classrooms which included a total of four students with a diagnosis of autism. The objective of the project was to focus on behavioral interventions that can be used in the general education environment to decrease inappropriate behaviors, increase appropriate behaviors and increase students' time in the classroom with their typical peers.
