This curriculum project addresses the challenges students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) face in the general education classroom and provides integrated research based instructional strategies aligned with accommodations and/or modifications. Specific challenges addressed in this project include structuring lessons with routines for challenges with social interactions, modifying curriculum for use with technological devices for a deficiency in fine motor skills, and adapting classroom procedures in the mathematics classroom for ASD students with Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The accommodations and modifications are blended into the eighth-grade mathematics curriculum according to the Common Core State Standards and New York State’s Next Generation Standards. The curriculum provided has been adapted to the middle school mathematics content for the volume of geometric solids unit.
