Are there any current teaching practices that you are implementing in your classroom at the moment that you are finding helpful?

Please share!

Quite often individuals with Asperger syndrome do things that invariably irritate others. Those in the position of authority, such as parents and teachers, make judgments based on what they see. It is my opinion that many times this leads to mistaken presumptions and problems result. Always ask "What were you trying to do?" before jumping to conclusions. For example a teacher said "Joey" was hitting another girl yesterday and got upset with him when he responded "No I wasn't." This created a back and forth Yes-No interchange. I informed the teacher that it really was a definition problem and asked the child if he had made body contact in any way. He responded that he did. "What were you trying to do?" "I was playing tag." This demonstrates an all too often problem. Our perception of the situation is incorrect. Add to this mix the problem of a hyper-literal mind ("hit" means "to cause bodily harm." I wasn't hitting.) and deficient Theory of Mind (I know why she made that comment and what she was thinking. I need to get her to understand what I was doing.) Can you see why these interactions usually end up in arguments?
