TED: How do autistic children learn?

What are autistic children learning in your classroom? How are they learning? What is distracting them? What are their strengths? What can we do to help children who think differently to ourselves, to learn, e.g. the classroom environment, the curriculum, our choice of pedagogy?

This TEDtalk discusses how an autistic person’s mind works and the need for people to think in these different ways.

How might this have an affect on the curriculum that we teach? It suggests the importance of creativity, a subject that Ken Robinson is passionate about.
