Students with Asperger Syndrome and autism can be successfully integrated into mainstream or self-contained classrooms in ways that benefit the student, classmates and teachers. Here are some approaches that have proved helpful:
Educate teachers in techniques that help students on the autism spectrum modify challenging behaviors. Work closely with parents to understand what works best for individual students.
Consider providing individual or group social skills training.
Work with parents who wish to disclose their child's diagnosis to a class. If the child and parents don't wish to disclose, provide general awareness education to help classmates understand students with neurological differences. Classmates who know the reasons for different behaviors tend to be more supportive and less likely to tease or bully.
Begin transition planning early to realistically prepare students for life after graduation.
