Teaching English to a Student with Autism Spectrum Disorder in Regular Classroom in Indonesia
Padmadewi, Ni Nyoman; Artini, Luh Putu
International Journal of Instruction, v10 n3 p159-176 Jul 2017
The recognition of students with special needs has been increasing significantly in Indonesia recently and the better understanding as well as supportive school programs is urgently needed. It was found out that schools and teachers in Indonesia had very limited preparedness either in teaching skills or material development to meet the actual needs of the students. This study then aimed at investigating appropriate strategies of teaching English to a student with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) included in a regular classroom. This research was in the form of a case study conducted in North Bali Bilingual School. The data were collected through observations and interviews. The findings show that the Individual Education Plan (IEP) provided with visual media through co-teaching, differentiated instruction and also through a "buddy program" are found appropriate to help the student learn English as a foreign language. These strategies are effective to be implemented in an inclusive classroom program.
