Teaching students with autism spectrum disorder

from Scholastic Administrator Magazine

Chris Cooper, a fourth-grade teacher at Moorlands Elementary in Kenmore, Washington, says he didn’t have students with autism in his class for the first half of his 22-year career — at least none that he was aware of. But that has changed over the past decade. "It's not unusual to have one or two kids on the spectrum in a classroom anymore," he explains. Cooper's experience reflects wider trends in the diagnosis of autism. In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that one in 150 children were identified with the disorder. Today, that number is one in 68 — with boys at five times higher risk than girls. more
