I agree with you, Madison and Cassidy. There is so little research on practices and strategies with writing for students with ASD and it really shocked me to hear that acknowledged. We need to change that! I think these five steps are vital to providing FAPE to all students, not just students with ASD. I think many teachers find a evidence-based practice they think will be effective and implement it, without reviewing effective strategies, looking at what has been implemented with this student before, or evaluating the usefulness of a strategy after it has been implemented! One of my cooperating teachers in a field placement used the same strategies over and over with her students, in a variety of subjects, when she knew that they were not effective. I did not understand why she did not implement new strategies to help her students, but she never evaluated the program as a whole. We, as teachers, must never forget that!

      I have wondered the same thing! It seems that there is a lack of research with a lot of things when it comes to students with ASD. I imagine as people learn more and more about ASD the research... more
