Students in the inclusive Nest Model score above their peers in statewide assessments with no paraprofessional support!

Everyday Classroom Strategies and Practices for Supporting Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, The ASD Nest Program serves students with autism spectrum disorder and typically-developing students in a co-teaching, inclusive model and does not require paraprofessional participation.

Adopted by the New York City Public Schools and the country of Denmark, this evidence-based approach, Everyday Classroom Strategies and Practices for Supporting Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders shows how children with ASD can be successful in general education settings. This timely resource clearly communicates how to create a classroom in which every learner succeeds with specific and easy-to-implement strategies for students who require minimal supports, as well as those who require more intense interventions.

In compliance with current trends in education, Everyday Classroom Strategies and Practices for Supporting Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders incorporates evidence-based practices, positive behavior supports and uses Response to Intervention (RtI). The proper education allows educational professionals and other important adults to provide individuals with autism spectrum disorder with proper instruction and support.

Note: There is no classroom paraprofessional in this model. And students with autism in the Nest Program score above their peers on statewide assessments.
