There is no way you can be a great teacher if you don’t know how to manage the behavior of your students. Learning the skills takes times and you should not be worried about not having the necessary skills when you are starting out in the profession. Note that some of the students will have special needs and children who are autistic are among this group. It will be easy for you to monitor behavior if you keep tabs on the what is manifested by your students in the class. It is worth noting that the incidences should be reported and documented immediately they happened. This is not simply a document which is meant for punishing students who are not behaving as desired in class but also in telling you who to start with when it comes to management of the behavior.
Students with autism have an issue with talking to their peers and interacting with them. One of the most evident problems with autism is that people living with it do not like change in their routine and you should let any autistic student know of the intent to make changes before it actually happens. This will ensure that they are prepared psychologically so that the reactions are not intense when the change comes. At times autistic students will not be able to use their motor skills and they can be given laptops and tablets in taking notes instead of being forced to take the note through handwriting. In cases where to instructions have to be provided to the entire class on the board, there should be a copy for the autistic. Some of the activities these students find daunting include completion of homework, management of assignments, organizing and planning activities, participating in assignments and learning how to navigate tasks. This brings a negative effect on the social, cognitive and academic abilities of the autistic child. You can facilitate better impact by letting the student take a picture or find a way to keep the instructions in order to refer to them in as he or she walks on the assignment.
Do not think that you can bully an autistic learner out of the condition. The best thing you can do for them is making sure they feel supported. It is worth noting that even involvement of parent in this process is critical because at the end of the school session the child will have to go back home. Serious variations in these two environments might mean that the situation will get even worse and this might send the child to a worse place. There are a lot of resource and tools teachers and parents can make use of in relating well with autistic children.
