STUDENT: Charlie is 7 years old, in an inclusive classroom at a CMSD school, first grade.

Charlie has an IEP and is eligible for services under the IDEA category of Autism. He has a medical diagnosis of autism as well. Charlie was in an inclusive Head Start program for pre k experience. He is verbal but has some echolalia (repeats phrases and words). He has some difficulty with reading comprehension. Although he is verbal and communicates in phrases and sentences he is often off topic and he has difficulty with the pragmatics of language (social communication). The intervention specialist provides services in a resource room. He works with the IS for two hours a day, usually in the morning when the rest of the class is involved in direct instruction reading program. The IS provides intervention in the area of reading, specifically comprehension, as well as language (vocabulary development, staying on topic during conversations and taking turns). She provides consultation to the general education teacher for one hour each week. The speech therapist sees Charlie for 4 hours a month in a pull out session with focus on conversational skills. The occupational therapist has provided consultation services to the general educator to help modify the environment to help Charlie meet his sensory needs.
