Purpose only needs to be a page. lit review 6 pages. Purpose page is for TOMORROW. Lit review draft is next week.
I wrote the following so far and am stuck on the purpose along with lit review:
The topic I chose to research was early integration of students with autism. Early detection is important in understanding behaviors in a child and being able to understand why those behaviors are occurring is key to bridging the gap disabled and non disabled peers. Autism is a developmental disability that commonly displays speech, language, and social interaction deficits. The severity of it varies and behaviors that individuals experience can be detrimental to a childs development of left unaddressed. This paper will explore how school integration at an early age affects students identified with Autism compared to students integrated at later ages. Exploratory research from SAGE, Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, Autism treatment surveys (ATS), and other peer reviewed articles from accredited surveys will be reviewed. A discussion will include the best strategies for the childs development to transition between school, community areas, and home, overall positive and negative effects of integration, teacher and parent impact, and any roadblocks identified within the integration process.
Main Question: How does early integration of students with Autism into social situations impact the students ability to perform with peers compared to those identified with Autism who were not integrated early?
Sub-question: What difference in behaviors can be seen in students identified with Autism integrated early versus those who were no?
Sub question: What difference in behaviors can be seen in students identified with Autism integrated early versus those who were not?
Sub question: What are early learning strategies that increase the success rate of children with Autism to achieve future endeavors such as living independently and attaining and maintaining a job?
