ABSTRACT
The author focuses on public schools and children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The author describes public schools as dynamic social systems with limited resources, and claims that students with disabilities sometimes lack the services they need due to a lack of support from school administrators and because of the multidisciplinary nature of special education. The author discusses the consumer advocacy model (CAM) and the contextual fit approach as they relate to intervention selection for children with ASD, and provides advice for choosing an intervention program in the contextual fit model.
