Overview

In many ways, the challenge of effectively teaching students with autism / ASD increases as their grade level increases. Students with autism enter middle school with very different maturity and ability levels due to the individual nature/extent of their disorder, as well as degree of support they have received in school and outside of school previously. To meet the extremely diverse educational needs of middle school students with autism, general and special education teachers, support staff, administrators, school psychologists and other educators must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide a range of evidenced-based interventions to students who require different degrees of academic and behavioral support. This guide helps middle school educators meet this challenge by offering quick and easy access to key information about autism along with numerous easy-to-follow, evidence-based teaching strategies and behavior management techniques that will help students with autism succeed in the middle school classroom.
