Several autistic children in mainstream class

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by behindprivateeyes, Jan 12, 2012.

  1. I'm hoping that someone might be able to offer a some ideas. I've got four children on the autistic spectrum in my mainstream class, all very different individuals and, whilst none is a major disruption, it seems that whatever I plan to do causes a problem - it seems that being able to teach autistic children individually is nothing compared to a group. My main worry is, oddly, working in a group situation.
    Does anybody have ways of supporting groupwork or paired work in the primary classroom?
  2. Try to get to a Teacch Training. Try to set up individual learning stations for each child and individualize things as much as possible. Exellent classroom management is essential - close family contact is essential. Get the support staff onboard or get different TAs if you can. This situation calls for really good support. Find a motivation system for each individual and reward consistantly. Everything will cause trouble until you get the leaks stopped.
