Grossi-Kliss, Joanne
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p97-106 Sum 2006
Teaching children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be the most challenging to preschool teachers because of the complexity of this brain disorder. A child s life is affected, whether its communication and language, social and play skills, activities of daily living, self-regulation behaviors, and sensory impairments. Therefore, a teacher over a class of preschoolers including children with ASD, deciding what skills to work on can be daunting. The purpose of this study is to explore the best approach to teaching children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder in the classroom. When teachers are presented with different skill areas (social, play, following class routine, self-regulation behaviors, communication, cognitive, sensorimotor, activities of daily living, and group activities) what do they feel are the most to least important skills when working with a child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder?
