A place for teachers and other providers of special education services to support each other, share information, and discuss topics, including assessment.

Welcome to this group!

Ray Dorso Director of Special Services, New Milford School District

I'm very excited to begin a group on Autism! The purpose of this group will be to discuss best practices related to teaching students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I am looking forward to hearing how other educators are making a difference in the lives of children with ASDs.

We will talk about methodology, technology, program design, motivation and many other topics/issues.

Please take a minute to introduce yourself.

Thanks Ray

I have a 3rd grader in my classroom with Autism. He is very violent. When he gets angry he throws chairs and hits the teacher and has tried to hit me. I am unsure of how to handle this. We have had to remove this child from the other classroom he was in due to his behavior. he only attends PE, lunch, recess and computer lab classes. I go with him to his music and computer class. I just don't know what to do with him. Our new student's parent's have asked for her to be removed from our classroom because her child is scared of this child. How do I handle this problem?

I'm a mother of a son with autism,it took years before I got recognition that my son has autism.
It's still in its infancy,it is not recognised by regular doctors.
Now I know why my son always seemed to be so different from other kids.
Glad to join this group.

I love the website abcteach.com. I use it almost every day for ideas, worksheets, activities and suggestions for just about any educational topic you can think of. It has information for all different age levels as well

Hello All -
I am a special education teacher in the Montgomery, Alabama public school system. I have been teaching multi-disabled 6th - 8th graders for 5 years. For the past two years I have worked exclusively with students with autism. I have developed a complete training series of assessing, identifying and teaching autistic students. However, I always appreciate hearing what others are doing that work as well!

I will be happy to answer any questions regarding my methods.
