Just bought the TEACCH approach to Autism book! Has great reviews.

Help for Billy by Heather Forbes

I just started “Uniquely Human A Different Way of Seeing Autism” by Barry M. Prizant, PhD.
I’m so far very impressed with how he teaches us to view students with Autism’s complex and scary world. I highly recommend it!

How does your resource classes work? Do you pull students into the resource room after they have had the main instruction to help them in the small group setting? Or.. do you actually teach the ELA and Math curriculum in the SPED room instead of them going into the General Ed class for ELA and Math instruction? Maybe something entirely different? I’d love to hear what you are doing and if it works for you.

My principals ALWAYS seem to visit my room as soon as I give my student(s) a break from their work or when they’ve finished early everything I had planned. They RARELY come in when I’m actually in the middle of making progress on a lesson. It makes me feel like I have to be defensive & justify why the students aren’t working. Does this happen to anyone else?

I am working with a self contained student to learn his sight words. We are using Snap Words and I am excited about his progress. But when we go to share his success the other teacher says " He can't do that. He doesn't even know the letter names." Right in front of him. It broke my heart for him. I have data that shows he does know his letters and sounds and can identify 14 of his sight words, but the teacher doesn't believe in him or what I tell her. It makes me feel so discouraged.
