Autism

Student one on one with Teacher Autism is a spectrum disorder. Think of a rainbow with a wide array of colors. Some individuals are on the severe end and others on the mild end with endless variety through the middle (Melmed, 2007 p.3).

This wide array of characteristics provides us with students who are unique. The issues and problems faced by parents and educators working with students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are also unique. The teacher of students with ASD is well aware of these issues and problems and is very likely the most adept person on the campus in dealing with unique needs and individualized interventions.

Each year we attempt to provide support and encouragement for the parents and educators though opportunities for learning, instruction and hands-on technical assistance.
