I have 5 students with Autism, and the majority of my students have academic goals, except for one. He is 6, non-verbal, very low functioning, with all independent functioning goals, so I'm having a hard time figuring out how to run my classroom effectively since all of my other students are working on academics. For example, when the other 4 students are sitting down working on addition, I don't know what to do with this other student. I hate to word it like that, but... He needs either myself or my para sitting with him working with manipulatives or something, but our other 4 students are just as demanding. How can I make this work so that I'm meeting everyone's needs? I know that resource room teachers must feel the same way, trying to work with students of all levels at the same time. So how do you do it?
