"Integration for Children with Special Needs"
My practice has proven that inclusive education is the best way to rehabilitate children with autism. Instead of having to go through 8-10 intervention training sessions a day at a rehab facility, where these young children are being painfully coached, instructed, and taught, they just need one-on-one sessions for an hour a day. The rest of the time they should be integrated into kindergartens like other children, with the assistance from a special education teacher, so that they can live and learn in an ordinary kindergarten with ordinary children.
In this natural community environment, they will make significant progress in their core disorder social skills naturally. And children on the autism spectrum who grow up in an inclusive educational environment are nothing like the stereotypically trained children on the spectrum in rehab facilities. You could see light and their soul in their eyes.
