Autism, Interventions, Strategies, Behaviors
Studies have shown that many educators are not prepared to teach children with ASD in their classrooms, as they may not be familiar with the characteristics of these children (Jiar Yeo & Teng, 2020) and do not have the knowledge needed to help them succeed.
In this guide, we discuss the different characteristics of ASD, how they affect a child’s education, how to collaborate with families, and research and evidence based (proven to be effective through research and quality studies) intervention strategies that will assist general education teachers, paraprofessionals, special education teachers, and any other professional in the educational field that may benefit in understanding the complexity of ASD and the best current intervention practices that may assist these young students get on the right path to reach their full potential. It is important to note that not every intervention will work for every child, as every child is different, and every child has their own set of challenges.
