Authored by Harbinson, H., and Alexander J. in Support for Learning, Volume 24, Issue 1, p. 11-18, (2009).

Article summary (posted Oct 14, 2010):


Use of structure and small groups may help children with Asperger syndrome to understand the imaginative content of an English curriculum.

This article describes the problems that students with Asperger syndrome may have when thinking about what is taught in English class. The hardest part of English class for children with Asperger syndrome is the part of class that requires use of the imagination. The authors note, though, that each student has a unique way of looking at things and each student makes a unique journey with the content of the English class. The authors found that students who knew that they had Asperger syndrome were more willing to work in small groups to learn. Many of the students who received one-on –one help from an English teacher were able to learn to use their imaginations.
