    Have you searched about autism? Autism Spectrum disorders is one of the most growing disabilities being recognized in the U.S. today. I would suggest some of the characteristics, teaching strategies, what it's like living with autism, ect. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I am not just an Autism Support Specialist in a middle school, I also have autism as well. I have my full teaching credential in special education and I have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (mild autism). Are you working on an action research project?

    Research ADHD and treatment plans. (meds, diet, sensory intergration, natural approach, etc....)

    Does one plan work best or is a combination of each help?

    Research papers

    Hey it's me again. I have absolutely no time for a research (or anything for that matter). Anyways, does anyone have a research paper they can share? I would just use it as an example nothing else. Thank you very much in advance!

    WOW!!!! IT's amazing! I haven't even picked out a topic for research (shame on me)!!! It is soooo hard to study, work and take care of twins at the same time:(

    Grad Student,

    Is your project an Action Research Project? I did one to obtain my level II recommendation for my Clear Education Specialist Credential here in Ca. I had to look up something online, I had to formulate some questions that needed answering, then I broke it down into one area. I had to do data collection for a total of 6 full weeks as well. This was very difficult when I first was given this assignment, but I had less than 5 months to complete this whole course. If I hadn't gotten the nerve and drive to complete this project, I wouldn't have a current classroom. It was rather overwhelming in the beginning because I had never heard of these type of projects. I wish you the best of luck with your future endeavors as well.

    I don't think it is ethical to ask for someone's paper on this site, GradStudent.

    A good research topic might be the differences, if any, in teaching boys vs. girls. Or the issue of gender segregated classes.

    What are you studying?

    I would like to know what you are studying in grad school. I would like to think an individual who has made it as far as grad school would know better than to use someone else's paper. Perhaps you should consider taking an ethics course. :(

    I am in grad school right now and I have to do an action research project instead of a thesis. When it gets a little closure to the time when I am in the heart of that, I may ask you some questions, if that's okay. ;-) :D
