Example text

All teachers, parents and caregivers must know the precise goals of the programme and must collaborate closely on the methods to be used with the child. It is essential that parents also be trained in the teaching strategies to be used in any intervention programme because the child spends more time at home than at school (Howard et al. 2010). Objectives are best achieved by using both direct instructional methods and by maximizing the naturally occurring opportunities in the child’s daily life.

Interventions for autism Many different approaches have been used to reduce the negative behaviours often associated with autism. These have included pharmacological treatments, diet control, psychotherapy, behaviour modification and cognitive self-management training. Of these approaches, behaviour modification (also known as applied behaviour analysis or ABA) has produced the best results (Ashcroft et al. 2010; Dempsey and Foreman 2001). Cognitive approaches are problematic with lowfunctioning children because their application requires a degree of metacognition and self-monitoring not usually found in severely autistic children.

Parents, paraprofessionals and volunteers may need to be reminded to allow the children with disabilities in their care to do more for themselves. Teaching approaches for students with intellectual disability The main priority in teaching children with intellectual disability is to make the curriculum reality-based and relevant. It has already been mentioned that for cognitive development and for the acquisition of skills, these children need to experience things at first hand and have others mediate (interpret) these experiences.
