Students With Autism
"Educating Michigan's Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD): An Initial Exploration of Programming"
A new study finds that nearly one-third of educators at schools across Michigan did not expect their students with autism spectrum disorder to reach grade-level achievement standards.
The study, by researchers at Michigan State University, in East Lansing, also found that 26 percent of the students with ASD were described as never or rarely having access to the general curriculum.
The authors also found that, of 65 different educational interventions for students with the disorder, the ones educators most often used in Michigan had substantial evidence to support their use with students who have ASD.
Such interventions, however, were typically used only part of the schoolday, and, in many cases, not at all.
