Mainstreaming an autistic child into the classroom setting presents an interesting dilemma for an educator. The level of the autism determines the amount of activities and the teaching style the student requires for educational advancement. The majority of school systems provided a one-on-one aide for children with autism. The teacher's aide helps to keep the autistic child focused so the teacher is not spending all her time on one child. Patience and understanding is required by an educator with an autistic child in her classroom.
