Effectively Teaching Students on the Autism Spectrum

You already know that teaching challenges come in many forms, have many personalities. They have a seemingly endless ability to challenge, frustrate, disappoint and, we hope, eventually to delight. The delight comes when teaching yields good results. No short-term gratification here! The actual, positive results may not become apparent for years.

Students on the autism spectrum present special challenges. Here is a web site which offers extensive discussion on how to deal effectively with the challenges you will meet when teaching in an autism spectrum situation. This website is the National Autism Center at the May Institute. This is part of Ashland University, partnering with the Ohio Department of Education. This is a serious educational effort.

If this subject matter is of interest and value to you, I would urge you to check it out. You will need to register for a free account in order to access their “Dashboard”. The Dashboard allows you to investigate their many offerings relating to teaching and dealing with students on the Autism Spectrum.
