Daily Living Skills and Young Children with Autism
The Journal of Early Intervention recently published research on daily living skills and young children with autism. They wanted to understand the role of early intervention teachers’ perceptions toward the educational placement of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This study explored the area of daily living skills and the educational placement of students in school.
Past research has indicated that the cognitive ability, age of intervention, academic achievement, and social behaviors of a child with autism affect teachers’ decision-making to decide on educational placement in regular or special education. Adaptive behavior also plays a role which includes communication, socialization and daily living skills.
