Charles Huchet, EdD, is an educational consultant based in New Hope, PA. For many years he was special services director for the Princeton, NJ school district.He believes one of the most important things a teacher can do is to try to understand the disability."Having the right attitude helps.So does being a person who is open to learning and viewing the parent as an expert because the parent is going to be your chief source of understanding the child," Huchet says."If there's one thing I'd ask of a teacher, it would be to listen very carefully to parents and to take their lead, because the parents have learned through long years of trial and error how this child is put together.""No two of these kids (with Asperger Syndrome) act alike," he adds."Try to understand the disability and how it relates to this specific child.And be willing to learn some interventions and strategies that have shown to be effective with children on the upper end of the autism spectrum." Teachers with a "my way or the highway" attitude often do poorly with AS, says Dr. Huchet."You can't back these kids into a corner.They react very adversely.It's counterproductive.Give the child limited choices.Understand the fundamental value of providing structure, but be flexible.If you have a rigid teacher, you're going to have an awful year."Because of handwriting trouble or the attention school demands or the exhaustion a child with AS can feel, homework can become an issue.
