Att undervisa elever med autismspektrumtillstånd (AST)

Det är vanligt att elever med AST har en ojämn begåvningsprofil, som gör att eleven kan vara förvånansvärt stark i vissa ämnen samtidigt som hen har stora svårigheter i andra. Detta kan vara svårt att hantera pedagogiskt. Man bör också känna till att elever med AST har en betydligt senare social och känslomässig mognad än klasskamraterna. Det gör att det lätt kan bli missförstånd i den sociala interaktionen och eleven med AST kan riskera att hamna i en utsatt situation. Under mellan- och högstadieåren får många en ökad medvetenhet om sin funktionsnedsättning.

Aspergers syndrom

Ofta säger man bara asperger. Det är inte en sjukdom. Asperger syns inte utanpå. De som har asperger är oftast normalintelligenta och många har väldigt god språklig intelligens.

Strategies for Working with Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder - Make Take & Teach

If this is your first experience having a child with ASD in your classroom you may be a tad nervous (well, likely more that just a tad). You may be wondering how in the world are you going to meet the needs of this one child while balancing the needs of the other children in your classroom. How will you handle the behaviors? What do the parents expect? Children with ASD often come with them a barrage of service providers such as Speech/Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Behavioral Consultants and sometimes a 1:1 para-professional– how are we all going to be working together?

No two children are alike. No two cases are the same. Doctors are still figuring out the ins and outs of the spectrum. Misinformation is plentiful. It can definitely be a beautiful mess to navigate. I am not a doctor or a therapist. I do not have all the answers. However, I am a mom raising a child with autism and an educator who worked in early intervention. I am not going to try to pretend to be an expert in this – because I am by no means an expert here. When my daughter was first diagnosed with ASD we were told she would be non-verbal. As a parent I felt like I was back at square one fighting for everything that helped my daughter get to where she needed to be. But the educator in me knew better, it had seen children regress as services were cut back. Let’s first establish what Autism is.

What the Mother of an Autistic Child Wants Teachers to Know

We recorded the interview and I sent her the finished version to see what she thought. I got a call the next day. “I’m so sorry to have wasted your time,” she said, “but my husband and I just listened and we realized that if our daughter ever heard it, she would die of embarrassment.” Though I understood her concern, I hated the fact that so many people would miss out on hearing the interview, because some of the things Leigh talked about just crushed my heart. Other teachers — other people need to hear this. We originally sat down to talk because I was reading a book called The Reason I Jump, and I wanted to know what she thought about it. A few days after her phone call, I asked Leigh if she would be willing to have me air the episode with the names bleeped out, and all other identifying information removed.
