Easel 61: The Inclusive Classroom For Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Due to rising prevalence rates and symptom heterogeneity, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is of particular concern to general education teachers who are untrained in assisting the unique needs of the 1 in 68 students who are diagnosed with ASD each year. This pervasive developmental disorder involves myriad symptoms that are often noticeable before age three (US Department of Health and Human Services, 2016). While inclusive classrooms have been proven to be beneficial for academic, social, and emotional growth, developmental differences in children with ASD may manifest as aberrant problem behaviors in their social and emotional functioning, communication, sensory integration, or as repetitive/restrictive interests in the classroom. For my senior capstone, I gathered findings from research based interventions about classroom structural and curricular changes that aim to decrease the problem behavior in order to give all students with ASD the opportunity to achieve their academic potential in the least restrictive environment.
