I think your post provided excellent coverage of this week's topics. In regards to your question on materials, I think that it would be useful to make/obtain as many helpful materials as possible ourselves. If we make our own materials, we can gear them towards the specific needs of the children that we are working with. For instance, when working on letter recognition, we could make flip books with pictures and words beginning with certain letters that the child would be familiar with or things like that. One of the articles mentioned, as well, how children with ASD can be served in a classroom situation very similar to that of mainstream, typically developing students. Looking at it this way requires us to shift from looking at ASD as a diagnosis of "can't" to a diagnosis of "can"!

      As Jacob said, the answer to your questions depends on the school district's funding, etc. which is totally true. However, from what I've learned, a classroom library is imperative to the classroom... more
