Facilitating Inclusion for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Facilitating Inclusion for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Introduction

Inclusion refers not merely to setting but to specially designed instruction and support for students with special needs in regular classrooms and neighborhood schools. Instruction, rather than setting, is the key to success and decisions related to the placement of students are best made on an individual basis in a manner that maximizes their opportunity to participate fully in the experience of schooling. Inclusion is also called integration or mainstreaming. There is much evidence to suggest that students with ASD can benefit from integration with typical peers.

This issue of the Autism Spectrum Disorder Series provides methods to help facilitate inclusion for students with ASD.
