Hello to everyone!

I am currently working on a project for my "Students with Exceptionalities" class and am looking for information about teaching students on the autism spectrum.

I would really like to include some quotes from teachers on:

1 ) What are some of the opportunities that teachers face when teaching students on the autism spectrum?

2 ) What are some of the challenges that teachers face when teaching students on the autism spectrum?

3 ) What do you want other teachers to know about teaching students on the autism spectrum?

If any teachers would be willing to provide a quote that I can use in the presentation portion of my project I would really appreciate it!

In my resource room for students with moderate-intensive special needs, I mostly use the TEACCH methodology for all of our students with disabilities, not just those with autism.  We also use behavior modification strategies to work on specific behaviors, social skills training, socio-emotional lessons, etc. 

 

Is anyone using Pivotal Response Training? 

 

In my opinion, this is just a great way to speak to your students, to encourage language, and to reinforce appropriate behaviors, but maybe I am missing something. 

 

In order to see what I might be missing, I was hoping someone using the strategy could respond...

 

Thanks!

Hubby told me that you started this group and suggested that I join, since it is in my area of edtech expertise.
I represent a company that produces a web based tool developed by the Monarch Center for Autism in Shaker Heights Ohio. The tool, VizZle, provides teachers with the power to create and share lessons using visual learning supports....that can either be printed out or run as interactive lessons. EduPLN members can check out VizZle at www.monarchteachtech.com and sign up for the FREE 14 day trial...please make note in the comments section that you heard about this on the EduPLN and this will automatically be increased to a 60 day free trial. Please consider me a resource in helping teachers to tap into the power of technology to meet the needs of students with special needs... Contact me directly with any questions jwhitby@monarchtt.com ...
