The Tools and Resources Available in Dealing with Autistic Children for Parents and Teachers.
Every great teacher should have tips on how to manage classrooms well. Learning the skills takes times and you should not be worried about not having the necessary skills when you are starting out in the profession. You might come across students with special needs some of them with autism. A great way to know when to act is through keeping an incidence report book. It is worth noting that the incidences should be reported and documented immediately they happened. The report is not just to pick out the culprit but also to help you know who wants help the most.
Students with autism have an issue with talking to their peers and interacting with them. They do not respond well to changes too and teachers should and enlighten them about this before it happens. With good psychological preparation, the students will be able to adapt well to change when it cannot be postponed any longer. At times autistic students will not be able to use their motor skills and they can be given laptops and tablets in taking notes instead of being forced to take the note through handwriting. Even if the instructions are written on the board, the students can be provided with a copy of the same. When it comes to taking part in assessment planning and organizing, managing the assignments and even moving through the learning tasks, the students can find these too much to handle. This brings a negative effect on the social, cognitive and academic abilities of the autistic child. The teacher should ensure that the learners have a way to record instructions given for future reference.
Autism is not something people pretend to have and forcing them to behave like every other people is doing injustice to learners in this group. The best thing you can do for them is making sure they feel supported. Because these children are not with the teacher all through, the parents need to be brought on board in learning how to manage the behavior manifested without bringing a whole bunch of issues. Serious variations in these two environments might mean that the situation will get even worse and this might send the child to a worse place. When it comes to dealing with autistic learners, teachers, as well as parents, should take advantage of the available tools to do a great job.
