I've been teaching self-contained special education since 2010. Our classroom is a highly structured setting dedicated to supporting K-3rd graders with Autism and other low-incidence disabilities. Our focus is on academic skills as well as the development of language and communication skills, social skills, and self-help skills. An emphasis is placed on maintaining appropriate behavior and developing independent skills through the use of structure and visual supports. Many of our students go to at least one academic class with their general education peers.
I make heavy use of individualized and classroom schedules and visuals to promote student independence.
