Inclusive Education and Best Practice for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: An Integrated Approach
Lynch, Shane L.; Irvine, Angela N.
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v13 n8 p845-859 Dec 2009
Many parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have reported general discontent with the services offered by the education system and have advocated for increased ASD-specific services to better meet their children's educational needs. The elements of best practice offer an ideal model for educational support. There are, however, limitations to advocating ASD-specific services. This paper describes how best practice for ASD as an educational model fits within what is described as authentic inclusion. Further, it is suggested that the ASD community align with the greater inclusive education reform movement. With the use of this unified model of education, all children will receive the educational support they require. (Contains 3 tables.)
