    Hello,

    Well, one thing that makes a big difference is to have an idea of what level do they function at cogintively? Are these students that are in inclusive classrooms and function close to general ed peers? or are they lower functioning?

    Here's some basic advice....keep things visual. Many students with autism learn better visually than auditory. YOu can use words if they can read, or pictures or even objects if they can't read. Have clear expectations and a structured class to help them during that time period. Try to use group activities as they often need help working in social situations.

    The students I work with are more severely impaired...so I can't really think of any activites that you might use in a gen. ed setting.

    Good luck.
    FOr more info, try looking into the Autism Society of America. They have lots of info on their website and many other links as well.
