14 Feb Autism Push in or Pull Out
Autistic children generally need additional lessons at school, and these can be put into action in different ways. The Push-In method allows your child to stay in the classroom and receive extra lessons without having to leave. The Pull-Out method allows the child to receive their lessons somewhere else, removing distractions to allow more focus..
In this episode of Autism Live, Shannon Penrod teaches us the difference between Pull-Out and Push-In special education techniques.
What We Learned from this Video:
- When determining which method to go with, you must start by determining what your biggest priorities are for your child.
- You must also account for schedule and time constraints; do you have time for your child to be pulled out of class for a more focused study, or are there other concerns that already eat into time in the classroom?
- Schools may not even allow for certain programs or learning styles, so it is important to know the school’s policies and what programs they have in place.
- Pull-Out is great for a child who benefits from a sensory break, or if a child has a critical skill that needs one-on-one attention.
- Push-In is better when the child needs to focus on education and social skills.
Deciding between Push-In and Pull-Out options requires examining many factors. Schedule a consultation with Ability Life Solutions and determine what the best method is for your autistic child.
