Structured Teaching is the implementation of four structural strategies used to improve independence, increase engagement and enhance receptive communication skills in the classroom. The use of these visually based structural strategies capitalizes on the strengths of students diagnosed with autism and relies on an extensive understanding and appreciation of the characteristics of ASD. All of our classrooms implement, with fidelity, these structural strategies. This ensures the learning environment is more comprehensible, promotes active learning, motivates students, encourages productive work habits, and supports the generalization of skills. The structured classroom environment allows our teachers to transform individualized curriculums, instructional activities and independent tasks into concrete teaching tools. In return, these tools will support the executive functioning skills of our students. The long-term goal is to develop learners who are as independent as possible when they leave The Timothy School.
