Written Material

The strategies described on this article may help any teacher, family member, or support person as they work to understand, listen to, and communicate with students with autism. While there is much literature about how to improve the communication skills of students with autism, there is not much about how to improve the communication skills of the people who communicate with these students; this is the reason why Paula Kluth decided to write this article. The document gives some tips about eye contact, voice volume and tone, indirect communication and language. ,By supporting students' communication, we are encouraging the students to participate more and therefore facilitate the process of inclusion.,Keywords: Education, Communication, Autism, Inclusion,
