I also believe that along with your post, we have to keep in mind the century we are teaching in. Let us not forget that we are living in a social filled and media world. Technology is all around us and it is important that we incorporate that into our teaching. As teachers we have access to smart boards, computers, ipads, and all kinds of technology. Along with switching up lesson plans and activities, we also need to keep in mind about how to incorporate technology into these lessons and activities we do. Most ASD students who struggle with oral skills will most likely be using technology to communicate. If we are able to show them how other technology and computers can be used to learn, they might enjoy that more and be more engaged. As teachers we need to not just think about how to mix up lesson plans, but also what resources we have available to make them engaging and interesting.

      I think that a challenge with any student, along with students with ASD, is keeping them focused and motivated. We as teacher have to switch up what we are doing to try to get students interested. I... more
