About Me

A couple of years ago, I found my autistic child locked in a small cold cement cell at his school. The cell had no windows, no furniture, and was slate gray with low lighting. The cell was also sound proofed so parents and teachers outside wouldn’t hear him crying. I am writing this blog as a campaign to change the way these children are perceived and treated in our society.

#2 101 Ways a Teacher Could Help a Child with Autism

Hello again!
On Friday, I started a list of 101 Ways a Teacher Could Help a Child with Autism in the Classroom.  As I stated in that post, this list is to help assist the teacher in working with the children in their classroom.  Please read my second suggestion!!

Category: Before the Child’s first day in the classroom
Suggestion#2:  Review the information you have on the child before you meet them.
Review any information that has already been gathered by your school on the child.  Look for any information on how the child conducts themselves in the classroom.  While reviewing this information, make a list of all the items that the child has difficulty with that may affect their day at school (i.e. transitioning from one room to next, listening to multi step directions, etc).
