Extractions: Looking for something in particular? More search options Special Education Articles: Autism Articles: Video Teaching Video Teaching By Debbie Bleeck-Imming and Sharla Pitzen Video teaching promotes learning through the use of audio and visual techniques that will supplement a child's education both at school and home. Videos capture their interest by utilizing a desired activity that can enhance the achievement of goals and objectives. Desired skills can be learned or reinforced by repeated viewings of the video, which increases the likeliness of skill retention. Video teaching is an independent learning experience without drills or one-to-one instruction. Your child will be able to watch the video as often as they like, increasing the likelihood of skill mastery. Children progress at their own pace without external pressure or demands. Watching realistic, motivating, and entertaining videos promotes increased attention and generalization. Choosing the appropriate teaching video is very important. Be sure the videos target specific goals and objectives that are appropriate for your child or student's development. In addition, verify that the content is presented in a highly stimulating and entertaining fashion using a variety of settings. Look for the utilization of high interest themes, mascots, music, and teaching strategies that will engage your child in the video. What could be more perfect than to give your little one "additional learning" and fun at the same time? When chosen wisely, video teaching can truly be a "Golden Educational Opportunity!"

While autism affects people of a racial, ethnic and social l backgrounds, its cause is unknown. With proper diagnosis and services, people with autism can lead productive lives. Diagnosis, however is often complex and involved. While some of the cases of autism may be identified through behavioral observation alone, others may require extensive evaluation Including family history, psychological testing and medical studies. Because autism occurs so rarely and has varied symptoms, it is best that specially trained professionals conduct the evaluation and make the assessment. Children with autism often learn in non-traditional ways. Learning should begin at a young age, and early intervention is critical for the development of children with autism. Families and early intervention professionals often want and need help with developing treatment plans and effective learning teaching skills.

Extractions: Learning Differences Here are some links to resources that we hope you will find useful if you are homeschooling a child who has a specific difficulty or aptitude or whose learning, for various reasons, does not match the typical learning curve. Some of these resources are geared to special physical needs, others to different learning styles. Please note: We have tried to organize this material in a way that will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. For this reason we have adopted common labels, even while we may question the usefulness, helpfulness or accuracy of some of them. "Labeling is disabling" because children believe what we tell them. If we must label something, let it be the learning environment, not the learner: instead of "hyperactive child", let's concern ourselves with "activity-restrictive" schools; instead of an "attention-deficient" student, we ought to worry about "inspiration-deficient" classrooms;...
