Accommodating students with special needs and developing a learner-friendly classroom environment is undoubtedly one of the key elements of teaching. However, despite research conducted by the CDC suggesting that approximately 1 out of 68 children is on the autism spectrum, little progress has been made to ensure that public schools and accompanying curriculum adequately accommodate different needs. Furthermore, the stigma surrounding autism stems from a lack of understanding about the condition. Perhaps research into how to appropriately inform educators and students alike about autism would make for a more equitable, hospital learning environment. This would make a worthwhile Master’s thesis topic to undertake.
