Educational strategies for the autistic child.


This paper includes some of the latest discussions regarding educational programming for autistic children. Until the last decade, special educators have not been either effective or optimistic regarding the prognosis for such children. Recent educational developments with such techniques as behavior modification, the behaviorally engineered classroom, and early identification of the condition have caused increased interest in the possible contributions of educators to the puzzling syndrome. The various alternative treatment possibilities will be presented together with an evaluation of the effectiveness of such programs to date.
