Students with Learning Difficulties
Helping Students on the Autism Spectrum
Start with the assumption that the child wants to do his or her best.
If rewards and consequences are not working as a first approach, a teacher should look to understand and eliminate the cause of the behavior.
Be patient and creative in finding the underlying cause, and the solution that can satisfy both parties.
Effective Intervention with Dyslexic Students
A good tutor considers all variables and can diagnose what a student knows and does not know.
Change strategies based on specific strengths and weaknesses.
Create activities where participants all across the spectrum can work together.
Hold activities that raise awareness among non-special-education students.
Meet Your Students' Needs
Go past your biases.
Get to know your students.
Learn about students outside your gender, racial, sexual etc. demographic
Signs a Child is On the Autism Spectrum
Some people on the autism spectrum have delayed verbal responses to strong emotional (good or bad) events.
If a child engages in stimming, repetitive body movements, it could be a non-voluntary calming strategy or a way to increase stimulation. It shouldn’t be scrutinized but recognized.
Students that refused to do classwork are usually not being defiant, but rather there is an underlying problem that teachers need to discover and make accommodations for.
Teacher recommends a child be evaluated and the parents consent
Children are evaluated to detect what disabilities they might have, and how they can be addressed.
If a student is found to be eligible for services, the school and parents meet to discuss an individualized education program.
In the IEP meeting, the education professionals, parents, and sometimes the child meet to outline and detail the child’s IEP.
The IEP is carried out, the child’s progress is measured once a year, and the IEP is reviewed annually.
The child is reevaluated every three years.
