Scientists at UNC’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG) report that high school students with autism learn under Common Core State Standards (CCSS), boosting their prospects for college and employment. Newly published recommendations from FPG’s team also provide strategies for educating adolescents with autism under a CCSS curriculum.
“The number of students with autism who enter high school settings continues to grow,” said Veronica P. Fleury, lead author and postdoctoral research associate with FPG’s Center on Secondary Education for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. “Many educators may find that they’re not prepared to adapt their instruction to meet both state standards and the diverse needs of these students.”
