Connor's cues
Fri May 29, 2015 22:05

Our group talked about the cues that the teacher let Connor use when he had questions about his work, and who he should ask. Should he go back and reread, ask one of his classmates, or ask his teacher? Sarah, in our group, brought up the point that asking his classmates could lead to a distraction to the other students. I didn't even think about this. Although I think the teacher has a good approach when working with Connor, I think it could be distracting to the other classmates as well. My question is, how can the teacher implement this for Connor without having the distractions to the class? Maybe have a designated time period that allows him to ask his peers and the rest of the time is off-limits? Suggestions?

      I also liked the examples they used with Connor to better illustrate the theories. I also agree that patience is a skill you must have with students with ASD because the cluster of symptoms each... more
