Scientific Abstract



Layperson Summary:

TEACCH-structured work systems may help school children with autism learn to work independently.



The therapy program called the Treatment and Education of Autism and Communication-handicapped Children (TEACCH) is used in schools and special education programs to help children with autism. One part of TEACCH is using work systems to help children with autism gradually learn to do things themselves. Work systems are a visual system of organizing tasks and clearly showing what the child is asked to do. This article describes how work systems can be used in the classroom. Specific examples are discussed.
