My topic is schools supporting students with autism. I was interesting in this topic because I wanted to see if schools support students with disabilities. This topic relates to the autistic brain because they both talk about autism relates to the brain. Young people need to understand that autism is something to not make fun of because kids that have autism suffer from communicating and being in public places.
There have been several successful programs and services for disabled students. In order to best support students schools should provide support from programs. For example based on my research it says, “ The program provides support services, specialized instruction and educational accommodations to students, curriculum programs and academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, services and/or instruction to his/her disability related educational limitation” ( Semel institute UCLA ). This quote shows that this program gives support services to students with disabilities like autism. For example based on my research it says, “ The specific disability must be verified, and there must be all educational limitation that precludes the student from fully participating in general education without additional specialized services “ ( Semel institute of UCLA). This quote shows that the school or program needs to know what disability the student has in order to support the person.
Many parents should be able to also support students at home. There are plenty of strategies that have been proven to be efficient. For example based on my research it says, “ Be a mentor, listen without judgement, be a support system, be calm, react appropriately to stressful situation, be an advocate, work with your child to solve problems” (World institute on disability). This quote shows that these are some examples that parents could do to support their kids at home. Another example of tips for parents are, “ Experienced teachers who know your child well also get along with peers with and without disabilities” (world institute on disability) This quote shows that parents need to get to know their kids teachers so they can give them feedback back to them so they can see on what to support their kids.
In addition who are on the autism spectrum move successfully from one activity to another. For example in my research it said, “ schools, in increasing numbers, are recruiting professionals to serve the academic, social, and emotional needs of students with autism” (School Support for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder). This quote shows that schools support and are recruiting a lot of members to help out with students with autism. Another example is, “ SLPs are licensed professionals who diagnose and treat communication problems and disorders” (School Support for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder). This quote shows that these people are trained to help out students with disabilities .
Overall my research is important because it shows how kids with autism get support in school to become successful. This research has changed my perspective because people with autism are not different from us they just have different way to learn. Young people need to understand that autism is something to not make fun of because kids that have autism suffer from communicating and being in public places.
