I have a student this year with Autism. She is a wonderful person with a very kind heart. This student does not get any special services, as per parent request, and I try to differentiate for her but she won't do anything less than what the other students are doing, though she is unable to do so in the time given and then quickly frustrates. I have tried many things to keep her from getting so upset, like physically cutting an assignment in half, highlighting only the questions she needs to answer, and having an Educational Assistant preteach lessons in math. Does anyone else have any ideas on how I can help this student feel successful? She gets very down on herself when she compares herself to the other students. Thanks!
