Children with Asperger profiles—even those who are very smart and enjoy learning—may find school challenging. They may find it difficult to deal with the sensory environment (noises, smells), with social demands, and with gross and fine motor tasks. It may be hard for them to remain attentive, organized, and calm throughout a long, varied school day.
Because each student on the autism spectrum is unique, there is no single prescription for educational success. There will always need to be an individualized plan for each child. However, there are some strategies and approaches that ease stress and anxiety and help students thrive at school.
