Question Description

Students choose a disability to learn more about (Asperger’s syndrome). The student should type a 4-page paper on the disability, using basic APA formatting (e.g., 12 font, one-inch margin, double-space, citation, page number, and reference in a correct APA format). No title page or abstract is needed. For this paper, at least three (3) different sources should be used;

(1) 1 peer-reviewed scholarly journal article (not popular journals like Time or Newsweek)

(2) 1 organization, such as Council for Exceptional Children, or Council for Learning Disabilities, etc.

(3) 3rd source of your choice (except for Wikipedia, personal blogs, or interviews of people you know)

The paper must address:

(1)Introduction (written in 3rd person!)

-Why did you choose your topic?

-What inspired you to explore the selected topic?

(2)Definitions/characteristics of Asperger’s Syndrome

(3)Family support resources

-What is out there to support family to learn more about the Asperger or help them with their children.

  • Create these three environments to help student with the disabilities. What kind of socio-emotional, physical and behavioral environment would you create to help student with Asperger? What kind of strategies would you use to help students with Asperger’s syndrome?
  • Give example and Explain why you create the kind of environment.


  • What is the overall conclusion of your research?
