Question description

Discussion 1


As Chapter 9 of your text states “the number of students identified with ASD has increased over the last few decades.  Some people even call ASD an ‘epidemic’” (Powell & Driver, 2013, Chapter 9 Introduction).  This increase specifically affects you in the classroom or daycare center because it shows a high likelihood of your encountering children with ASD.  Therefore you must understand the disorder as well as the strategies that will support children with ASD in the classroom or center.  For this discussion, imagine you are new teacher just learning about ASD.  

This discussion has two parts: (Please be sure to include both parts of this in this discussion)

  1. Part One: After viewing the Autism Awareness Video: Diagnostic Criteria for Autism and reflecting on the reading from Chapter 9 of your text, briefly describe what ASD is according to IDEA. Even though “no two students with ASD exhibit the exact same characteristics” (Powell & Driver, 2013, Section 9.3), list a few of the difficulties children with ASD might have with communication, social skills, and repetitive or obsessive behaviors.  Lastly, explore several of the academic characteristics that some children with ASD might exhibit.
  2. Part Two: As your text states, “Many of the teaching suggestions presented in previous chapters may benefit students with ASD” (Powell & Driver, 2013, Section 9.6). The more we understand these connections, the more prepared we will be in terms of planning our instruction.  Complete the Austism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Table, comparing which instructional strategies might work with children with ASD as well as children with other disabilities. Be sure to complete each of the bulleted points as they are required, but you may add more detail outside of these bullets if you wish. Include your ASD Table as an attachment.
