As more and more children are being diagnosed with Autism, there is a growing need for special education classrooms. However, not all schools have the funding or space available to provide these extra classes. Because of this, autistic children are being placed in general education classrooms more frequently. This growing trend places several obstacles within the general education classroom. These obstacles include, but are not limited to: the impact on the teachers that teach both autistic and non-autistic children within one classroom, how the non-autistic children view the autistic students within their classroom and how teachers react to having autistic children in their general education classroom. It is important to address each obstacle individually when considering placing autistic children within the general education classroom as it may affect how teaching is conducted, what teaching tools are used and how much time may be needed on each subject. While it is imperative that autistic students get the proper education, is inclusion hurting or helping?

Problem Statement

This is my problem statement athat I am w riting for a paper that I am preparing for a class that I am currently in. My topic is "Autistic children in the general education classroom; mainstreaming, inclusion and pull out options". May be I need to change this also but I want to talk about the autistic children in the school system and placing them in the regular education classrooms. I need help making this problem statement work. Tell me what I need to do and how to go about this. I wantto make it presentable and I was told by one of my peers that this needed a lot of work. Help!

There is a problem in the local school system where I am current employed. That problem is that many of our regular education teachers are not properly trained to handle special education or special need children and the vast majority of teachers feel that special need students should be placed in special eduction classes. Not all special need children need to be placed in a special need classroom all day. Some of these children can be included in the mainstream classroom and taught along side of their peers.
