Michigan's Special Educators Slow to Adopt Autism Strategies

DETROIT -- Many Michigan educators need to do a better job teaching children with autism, according to a study being presented today to the state board of education.
The Michigan State University study is the first of its kind to examine the extent to which the state's public school instructors know and use effective practices to educate students with autism.
The study of 194 Michigan educators found that many teachers have little to no experience working with autistic children. More than 40 percent are not applying the most effective teaching methods, according to researchers.
