RUNNING HEAD: Autism Autism By: Emily Hickman Professor Alan Reitman ESE 315 Survey of Exceptional Students Ashford University 2/19/12 Autism The disability that I chose is autism. One of the reasons that I chose autism is because I wanted to learn more about it. I did work with a little boy in my class a few years ago that had a severe case of autism but I did not know that much about it. I knew he had it but I never researched it to learn anything about it. In this paper I will discuss at least five common characteristics of a student with autism.

Unit 8: Certification, Professional Development, and Ethics PS365: Applied Behavior Analysis II Prof: Jennifer Magnuson 2/3/2015 By Natalie Jennings There are many experiences that I have had that have led to my interest in Applied Behavior Analysis however I can’t say that they were due to my professional or educational experiences.

As I watched the Dalton Sherman video I began to reflect on my own classroom experiences with learners particularly the ones that were not successful this past school year. And I had to pause and ask did I really believe in their ability to achieve or was I caught up in the mundane doldrums of teaching. Did I disconnect with those students after they seemingly gave up or their parents did not complete the follow up activities or homework. As young Dalton Sherman kept asking over and over again, “do you believe in me,” I kept hearing my struggling students asking the same question. I am sorry to say I did not.
