Teachers: If you do not currently teach a child with Asperger's Syndrome you probably will very soon! Statistics now show that 1 in 88 individuals has an autism spectrum disorder like Asperger's Syndrome. This diagnosis has become more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike boys than girls. By law, these students must be mainstreamed in general education classes to the maximum extent possible. Research has proven that AS students think and learn differently and as a result, can sometimes present unique and challenging classroom behaviors.
The following articles are excellent resources for teachers of students with Asperger's Syndrome. They offer specific teaching tips, modifications, support techniques and proven strategies on how to help students with AS become successful in the classroom.
