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.

#11 101 Ways a Teacher Could Help a Child with Autism

Category: Before the Child’s first day in the classroom

Suggestion #11:  Review list of school rules with the child.
During the meeting in Suggestion #9, bring out the list of School Rules that you modified in Suggestion #4 and show them to the parent and the child.  Ask the parent if they already reviewed the rules with the child.  Ask the child if they have any questions.  If you are able to retain the child’s attention, read out loud any rules that the child will need to know before they enter the classroom (like safety rules on the bus ride, or items that they will not be able to bring into the classroom).
