Planning for Structured Teaching

For students on the autism spectrum structured teaching approaches need to be in place across all areas of the curriculum.
Teacher's recognition of a student's patterns of strengths and abilities, as well as need provide the necessary level of adjustment. Adjustments ensure that the child on the autism spectrum can access the content of the curriculum. Teaching needs to be clear and explicit and tasks broken down into manageable steps with easily understood expectations for successful completion.
