          Right, and those negative experiences can affect them for life and it can make it harder for future teachers to work with that student. Right that bond is very important and crucial.

        I agree! I think that students with ASD are entitled to the same education and opportunity that others are (if able). The question then arises, when the classroom are so large that the teacher is... more
