A Positive Teacher's Resource Guide: Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders in the Classroom
The purpose of this project was to develop a resource guide for educators regarding the development of a positive educational learning environment within the classroom, which utilize the strengths of their students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. After an extensive review of literature regarding students with ASD in the classroom, criteria were developed based on the three themes: clinical definition and identification, practical identification of students with ASD in the classroom, and attitudes towards the student with ASD in the classroom. These criteria were used in the development of the resource guide. Once the guide was written, it was reviewed by a panel of 11 educators including teachers and administrators. Feedback was compared to current research and revisions to the guide were made where supported by the literature. The final guide for teachers states the importance of identifying both the clinical and practical features of ASD, as well as provides strategies to enhance the learning environment of the positive teacher of students with ASD.
