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.

#6 101 Ways a Teacher Could Help a Child with Autism

Category: Before the Child’s first day in the classroom
Suggestion #6:  Make a complete outline of the child's day at school.

Write down all of the activities that the child will be doing for the day, as well as the time that those activities will start.  Be as detailed as possible, including whom the child will be with, where the child will be sitting during the activity, and what is expected of the child during this time.  Taking into consideration what you have already learned about the child in Suggestion #2, #3 and #4, highlight any areas that may cause difficulties for the child.
