“I Hate To Write!” Say the Students on the Autism Spectrum: A Solution!

“I Hate To Write!” Say the Students on the Autism Spectrum: A Solution!

I know that you know just how hard it is to get a student with ASD to write!  Meltdowns or refusals are quite common. Anyway that we can make things easier for our kids to navigate this torture chamber activity is a GOOD thing!

For one, I’d love to see homework go by the wayside.  If you read the body of research done by Hattie, you already know that he found homework to have no value in student success.  For our students on the spectrum it can turn into a major fight at home.

Another idea is to provide writing support.  You’ve seen me promote Expanding Expression Tool ( EET) by Sara Smith because this is a simple way to help all students expand their writing by tapping into knowledge they already have.

Today I have another tool that you’re gonna want to know about if you don’t already, that definitely supports writing, especially for our students with autism!

Open up and take a look!

I just had to share this material because it was not only written by two women in the field who have lived through the anguish of getting students to write, but who also provide very practical visual supports to help jump start and guide students to accomplish what they need to do to be successful in school.

Here we are at the end of May!  Our students are done for the summer and I’m guessing that if you are not also done, you are very close! Job well done!

If you are changing jobs this year, please remember to re-SIGN UP @ behaviorcommunicates.com with your NEW EMAL ADDRESS!  You won’t want to miss out on the great things I have planned for you as we move to the 2019-2020 school year!

ONE MORE THING!   Next week will be the last new material video for the summer, BUT we will be posting some of our subscribers’ favorites until we resume with new content in August!

This will give me time to finally get my next book and game published!  Be watching for upcoming news about that in the near future!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!
