People with ASD have difficulty interacting with groups of people. However, many of these people are very detailed oriented. Those with ASD act as though they have intellectual disabilities but are still functional and can learn. Those who have autism savant syndrome have extraordinary splinter skills. We also know that measles and mumps vaccinations do not cause ASD. There is genetic basis for autism stating that the hereditary component is very strong. No matter if the student has autism or Asperger disease they should be treated fair and the teacher should learn as much as they can about their student’s disability first. All children need a good education and should be treated with the same respect. Learning the facts is most important when working with disabled students.
