Persons with disabilities are NOT excluded from ....

"the general education system on the basis of disability, and that children with disabilities are not excluded from free and compulsory primary education, or from secondary education, on the basis of disability"
Article 24 CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

German Parliament not accessible !


Inaccessibility in Parliaments or other polical institutions leads to lacks in legislation and this means that persons with disabilities will be confronted with indirect discrimination because their political participation is restricted (Article 29 UN CRPD) and their needs not implemented into legislation !

Anmerkung: dass man dann von Seiten der Bundestagsverwaltung mit der Aussage kommt man wolle "die Zahl der Rollstuhlfahrer bei der naechsten Veranstaltung limitieren" ist wirklich unfassbar, stattdessen haette man aufgrund eigener Unzulaenglichkeiten die Veranstaltung in anderen barrierefreien Gebaeuden stattfinden lassen koennen bis der Bundestag barrierefrei wird ! 

How to Teach Autistic Children in the Mainstream Classroom

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.

Difficulty:
 
Moderately Challenging

Instructions

    • 1

      Study the child's Individual Education Plan (IEP) to understand his level of autism and the specifics for his educational goals. Make notes or highlight the areas of the IEP that require special modifications within the classroom for the child.

    • 2

      Talk with the aide assigned to the child and/or the special education teacher on how the child interacts with others and what would be the best location for his desk within the classroom. Select a seat in the classroom that benefits the autistic child in his learning.

    • 3

      Supply the aide with a copy of the daily lesson plans so she is aware of the goals the child with autism is expected to achieve. Provide a copy of all worksheets and instructions to the aide.

    • 4

      Communicate with the child on a daily basis and develop a rapport. Develop a routine to help him assimilate into the classroom. A break in the routine causes agitation and discomfort for a child with autism. Make sure to maintain the set schedule. A meeting with the child is as simple as saying good morning to him every day when he walks in the room.

    • 5

      Treat the child no different than the other children in the classroom. Be patient and understanding. Touch the child with autism on the shoulder to get his attention if he does not respond to your instructions. Make sure this is part of the IEP before attempting. Modify the lessons to his ability level and IEP instructions. Allow the aide to do her job.

How to Home-School an Autistic Child

Home-schooling is a popular option with many parents across the country. Home-schooling is legal in all 50 states. A bigger challenge is home schooling an autistic child. But this has many advantages. From concentrating on an autistic child's special needs to providing the type of care many pubic school programs do not offer, home schooling an autistic child is a viable means of education for your autistic child.

Instructions

    • 1

      Study your local home-schooling laws. While home-schooling is legal in all states, it's more difficult to get approved in some states than in others. Find out what you need to do from a legal and educational standpoint to begin to home-school your child.

    • 2

      Create a quiet environment for the child to learn in. Loud noises and other distractions are bad for most children to learn but are even worse for autistic children. A calm environment will allow an autistic child to focus on learning.

    • 3

      Work with your local school. While home-schooling is advantageous for autistic children, some schools might have adequate programs in place to meet the needs of special children. Your child might be allowed to participate in these programs even if she is being home-schooled.

    • 4

      Keep a journal. Record your child's behavior at various times during the day. Note when he is most attentive to learning. Adapt the teaching to fit your child's needs and habits. This will lead to less frustration for both you and your child.

    • 5

      Use visual aids. Autistic children understand visual concepts much better than verbal instructions. School your child by showing them, not telling them. Use flash cards, charts and tables.


Tips & Warnings

  • Research as much as you can about your child's autism. A better understanding of autism will help when it comes to educating your child.

  • Seek the help of a support group for parents who home-school their autistic child. Aut2BHome is a support group available on the Internet.

  • Help to expose your child to public settings by bringing her with you to run errands and do shopping. Since home-schooling will not help them with social skills, getting them out a few times a week will be beneficial.

How to Help Autistic Children in School

Autistic children differ in the way they perceive things and respond to them. Therefore, they often have difficulty making sense of the world as other children see it. The best way to help autistic children is to understand their special requirements and structure your classroom instruction accordingly. Following a regular routine, preparing in advance for changes in schedule, using visual cues for teaching and removing stimuli that cause a disturbance are some of the ways in which you can help autistic children do well at school.

Instructions

    • 1

      Provide a set routine for autistic children. Follow a consistent schedule with classroom activities since such kids find it difficult to adapt to changes. Keep disruptions to a minimum and inform parents whenever you plan to make a change in the regular class routine so that they can help prepare their child for it.

    • 2

      Identify the stimuli to which the autistic child is hypersensitive or less sensitive. Certain sounds, movements, sights and touch can trigger off tantrums in these kids. Consider what action can be taken to reduce the occurrence of such stimuli. For instance, if the school bell or PA system disturbs the autistic child, consider reducing the volume or stuffing duct tape into the device to muffle the sound emitted. Install a carpet to overcome problems with the sound of scraping chairs. For children who are disturbed by fluorescent light, allot seats close to the window, away from the room's light source or use incandescent bulbs for lighting the room.

    • 3

      Use visual methods to help autistic children understand concepts. Most kids with autism think in terms of pictures rather than words. Demonstrate whatever you are explaining with actions. For instance, while saying the word "up," pick up an object and make it move upward. Teach math using blocks with numbers printed on them. If the child shows a marked preference for a particular activity or toy, use that to help the child learn.

    • 4

      Keep instructions brief and to the point because autistic kids find it difficult to retain longer sequences. Too much information at one time can cause them stress. If the child is old enough to read, write down instructions on the blackboard. Repeat and summarize points at regular intervals to make sure the child follows what is explained.

    • 5

      Provide a lot of praise and positive feedback to encourage autistic children. Avoid general statements like "You're a smart boy"; specifically point out the behavior you are encouraging by saying "You did well putting those blocks together."


Tips & Warnings

  • Observe the autistic child to understand nonverbal ways in which he communicates interest, hunger or exhaustion. Children with autism often use particular gestures, sounds and facial expressions rather than words to communicate an emotion.

  • Understand that tantrums are an indication of the child's frustration. Deal with such episodes in a patient and empathetic manner.

Damit die Inklusionseffekte greifen koennen, sollte die 5. EU Antidiskriminierungsrichtlinie nun schnellstmoeglich verabschiedet werden !

Erklaerung: "Inklusion setzt die Integration aller voraus, sonst kann man allenfalls von Integration sprechen und die reicht fuer Europa nicht aus, weil dies beispielsweise bedeutet, dass 100 Millionen Europaeer (mit Behinderung) sich nicht frei innerhalb der EU bewegen koennen, weil sie in jedem Mitgliedsland auf verschiedene Lebensvorraussetzungen (durch verschiedene auf die Behinderung abstellende Gesetzeswerke) stossen! Exakt diese Harmonisierung sollte durch die derzeit (seit 20 Monaten) von der Bundesregierung blockierte 5 EU Antidiskriminierungsrichtlinie erzielt werden !!"

Europaeische Banken und Versicherungen werden am Inklusionsschaden mit 100 Mrd Euro beteiligt !
