Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is becoming more prevalent in our society. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with autism. Schools are seeing more students identified with ASD enrolled in the general education setting. This has become a challenge for teachers who are not prepared to differentiate instruction for a student with ASD in the least restrictive environment (LRE) of the general education classroom.
The purpose of this phenomenological study, using a mixed-methods survey, is to explore licensed teachers’ awareness of academic and behavior evidence-based practice (EBP) and if these practices are implemented in their classroom for students with ASD.
