If your first name begins with A-L, you will work on strategies to support children who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
If your first name begins with M-Z, you will work on strategies to support children who have Autism.
My first name starts with an S so you will work on Autism.

Now that you have read the text and any other resources to gain an overview of both ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), it is time for you to put all of your reading to practice.  Your task is to provide appropriate teaching strategies to support the development of a student in your classroom who has the assigned disorder.  By sharing strategies and resources, you will begin to develop a Strategy Bag so that when a child with one of these disorders enters your classroom, you will feel more confident in your ability to meet their needs.  We acknowledge that children with these disorders are individuals, and not all of the children will exhibit the same concerns or characteristics.  This is an opportunity to put theory into practice.
Reflect on your personal and professional experiences and your new learning about your assigned disorder and share your understanding by responding to the following prompts:
Identify at least two (2) learning characteristics children with your assigned disorder present.
Describe two (2) specific strategies/approaches to address these areas.
State how you would get the family involved in the childs educational program.
Explain why you believe children with this disorder should or should not be included in general education classrooms.
