Teaching Children with Autism, continued
It is recommended that you set up a program binder in which to keep written materials related to your child’s program. Typically, it will contain:
- Any assessment reports.
- An individualized service plan, containing basic identifying information, a summary of the child’s exceptionalities (including any relevant medical and assessment information), a clear and specific statement of your child’s strengths and needs, and a list of current and mastered teaching targets.
- A section for each part of the curriculum, e.g., fine and gross motor skills, mands, tacts, intraverbals, play skills, social skills, daily living skills, etc., etc.
- Program tracking sheets.
- Lesson summaries / communication log.
