Management and Education of Autistic Children
Arnold Rincover, Jill Tripp
ABSTRACT: Recent federal legislation has posed a new kind of challenge-the low functioning autistic child-for the public schools. Some of the most troublesome behaviors that autistic children present include disruptive behavior (tantrums, self-injury,self-stimulation), learning problems (stimulus overselectivity, motivational problems),and difficulties functioning in a group-oriented program. Recent advances in behavioral treatment procedures have enabled autistic children to benefit from educational opportunities in the public schools despite their pervasive developmental disabilities.
