Topic

An Individual with Autism and an Intellectual Disability

Description

The proposed study is a single-subject case study. For this study, we will be measuring the academic level of an individual with autism and an intellectual disability as compared to typically developing peers. This individual is in a self-contained classroom for students with intellectual disabilities for reading, math, and social skills. We will interview his special education teachers and also will be observing or administering a test to him a total of 5 times. There will be three standardized tests administered: Woodcock Reading Mastery Tests-Revised, Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement-3, and KeyMath-3. These three standardized tests measure the participant’s overall level of academic achievement, as well as breakdown his strengths and weaknesses in specific areas of reading and math. We will analyze the scores from these standardized tests to gain understanding of the student’s academic ability in order to provide recommendations for the instructional level in which the student should be taught.
