Supplemental Aid to Support Students with Autism: Help for the General Education Teacher

This project offers a resource manual for general education teachers supporting students with autism. Tools and supplemental aides have been researched and implemented in general education classrooms with students with autism. Positive support strategies in the classroom that have proven themselves to be successful for teachers to implement with students with autism have been added to the project manual. These positive support strategies and supplemental aides support a) peer interactions b) crisis prevention and planning c) social stories curriculum and d) managing oppositional or defiant behaviors. Worksheets, curriculum, sensory objects, and pedagogical teaching strategies have been accumulated into one project manual for reference and review by educators. This manual is intended to provide teachers with the resources and knowledge necessary to sufficiently educate students with autism and appropriately manage and support the social, emotional, and behavioral tendencies of such students.
