    Teaching Autism Spectrum Disorder Learners: Improving Outcome by Integrating the Outdoors by Arbury, Heidi Raine

    Teachers can improve outcomes with ASD learners by considering each child's individual strengths, interests, capabilities, and special needs during planning and implementation. As with general education learners, the teacher that focuses on establishing and maintaining meaningful relationships and creating a nurturing classroom community will find the best from each child. Deficits in communications or social interactions can be developed using outdoor activities, and restricted or repetitive behaviors can be redirected using positive reinforcement.
