According to Boutot (2010), interacting with same-aged, typical peers, children with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) has been shown to improve their behaviors, communication and social skills, and play behaviors (p. 156). Many of these interactions will begin at a young age in a grade school classroom, or at home with their own parents. Many of the characteristics of ASD are the cause of peer rejection. Their social deficits stem from a lack of understanding the importance of social norms (Mazurik-Charles, 2010).

Students are all different. Kids all learn different ways, and at varying paces. Both Physical and Learning Disabilities can hinder a child’s learning speed and hold them back from the rest of the class. It can be very difficult to identify a child with a learning disability because students can often be misunderstood and labeled as unmotivated and lazy. These students are often ignored and not given enough individual attention, and therefore they experience difficulty and frustration all throughout their education.

Inclusion can create an atmosphere for optimal adaptation in many cases. In comparing and contrasting information gathered from “From my Friend, Ro Vargo” (Villa & Thousand, 2005) and Disorders of Childhood Development and Psychopathology (Parritz & Troy, 2004) the examples show that “the best of what is possible” (Parritz & Troy, 2004, p. 3) is an ideal outcome for exceptional students through the process of academic integration.

It was not until 1994 that the American Psychiatric Association included AS as a diagnostic category in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-Fourth Edition (DSM-IV; Myles, 2002). Although some debate exists among researchers, AS is considered part of the autism spectrum (Attwood, 1998). Autism is generally defined as having an impairment of both normal social interactions and communication (Out of the Deep Freeze, 2003). However, individuals with AS are often highly verbal (Gottlieb, 2003). Even though labeled high-functioning autism, AS may cause the greatest disability in adolescence and young adults when it comes to developing social relationships.

Autistic children can also be characterized by repetitive behavior and obsession with routine. Wide ranges of severity exist among those affected, for example, communication development can be displayed through complex language acquisition or the child may demonstrate no form of communication at all. A Parent's Perspective If you receive a diagnosis of Autism for your child, it can be devastating. Finding the appropriate help for your child can prove to be a painstaking endeavor. It is common for parents to receive conflicting, and/or erroneous information about the treatment of Autism from various professionals.
