Effective Education for Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder: Perceptions of Parents and Professionals
Jindal-Snape, D.; Douglas, W.; Topping, K. J.; Kerr, C.; Smith, E. F.
International Journal of Special Education, v20 n1 p77-87 2005
There are various views among academics and researchers about the best type of educational provision for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. In the present study parents and professionals were interviewed to get a better insight into their perceptions regarding the various educational provisions on the specialist to mainstream continuum. Parents seem to be of the view that whatever the educational provision, teachers should have adequate autism-specific training. If all teachers were trained in this way, parents see advantage in the child being in mainstream settings. More importantly, whatever the provision, the quality of delivery, staff attitude and curriculum modification play an important part in creating an inclusive environment. (Contains 2 tables.)
