70 Tips & Tricks for Educating Students with Aspergers/High-Functioning Autism


Research  has identified classroom characteristics that promote success for children with Aspergers and High-Functioning Autism: individualized instruction, interesting curriculum, positive reinforcement, predictability, short working periods, small  teacher-to-student ratio, and plenty of structure.

Research has also identified optimal teacher characteristics: consistency, firmness, frequent monitoring of the child’s work, humor, knowledge of behavior management strategies for students on the spectrum, patience, personal warmth, and positive  academic expectations.
