The school district generally provides these services through the special education department, based on an assessment and planning process that includes a team of experts and intervention providers and the child’s parents. The document that spells out the student’s needs and how they will be met is the Individualized Education Program. It describes a student’s strengths and weaknesses, sets measureable goals and objectives for the student, and provides details about the supports and accommodations that will be used to meet them. For students who do not qualify for special education services, but still have a disability that requires support, accommodations.


For teaching kids with Autism the suggest.

1. Create a classroom routine. Students with autism appreciate routine.

2.Give fewer choices. Students with autism can get overwhelmed when given list style selections.

3.Use appropriate technology. There is so much helpful technology for kids with Autism.

4. Treat them like any other kid as much as possible. Make sure students with autism get the “kid” experience, not the “autistic kid” experience, or the “special needs” treatment.
