Practical Considerations for Teaching Artists with Autism
Furniss, Gillian J.
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v106 n9 p6 May-Jun 2007
In the United States, the likelihood that an art teacher may teach a child with autism in an inclusive classroom is high, since one out of every 166 children in the country is diagnosed with autism. Federal law mandates that every child has the right to a free and appropriate education. Some children with autism have exceptional artistic abilities and are mainstreamed into art classrooms with typically developing children. The challenge for the art teacher is how to design a universal curriculum that accommodates the learning abilities of all students and to assess them accordingly. In this article, the author discusses some practical considerations for teaching artists with autism. (Contains 1 resource and 1 online resource.)
