Strategies for Helping Autistic Students with Writing Avoidance

Help your autistic students with writing avoidance by referencing and applying the explanations and strategies documented in this practical teaching resource. Written by noted Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) expert John Bruno, this resource outlines the fundamental challenges students with ASD face when moving through the traditional writing process, and why they so often respond with avoidance behavior and frustration.
An overview of the role perspective-taking plays in this challenge, along with specific strategies for modifying the process and tackling the avoidance behavior, provides actionable insight into adapting the traditional writing curriculum to minimize avoidance behavior and maximize the writing experience, and writing classes, for students with ASD.
