Running Head: NO, FINDING RESEARCH 1 Finding Nemo? No, Finding Research Priscillia Rivera EDU 694 Capstone 1: Educational Research Instructor: Dusty Clark October 12, 2018
FINDING NEMO 2 Finding Nemo When one is conducting research on a specific topic that they are looking to write an essay on, it isn’t always an easy task. However, when using such search engines as Ashford University library, Google or .gov sites for scholars and specific words that pertain to a topic can be very helpful. The topic that I will be conducting my research on will be Autism. Autism is a as a disorder that isn’t visible to the eye, but it is there and there are three different levels to autism that are on the same spectrum. I have chosen Autism because it is a disability that many children have been diagnosed with including my nephew and so many of the children that are assigned to my classroom. The levels of Autism are the following: Asperger’s Syndrome, Autistic Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PPD-NOS). These levels have different symptoms that an individual may display but, these levels can be determined as Severe, Mild, or Moderate form of Autism. Autism affects the development of one’s communication, social and emotional skills of those that have been diagnosed with one of the forms. The first I will be talking about is Asperger’s Syndrome, it is one of the mildest form of Autism and students that are diagnosed are known to be high functioning. However, a lot of them struggle with their social skills and may be delayed in their speech as well as having other delays. Some of these children may develop normal, but may also have behavioral issues as well. Each person is different and no two people can be compared with one another. The second one is one that is Autistic disorder and is a more severe form where children with this type of autism normally will have developmental and neurological issues. Those with this disorder will have trouble with their communicating skills, daily routine, and behavior. Those with this specific type of disorder will need to have a daily routine set for them that will
FINDING NEMO 3 help them cope with their behavior and communication skills. Those with PDD-NOS also have an inclusive rage of intellectual capabilities. When researching Autism and action research there is a plethora of information on the world wide web. Below I have the resources that I have located that I think will be very beneficial in providing information on Autism and the different research studies that have been done to benefit those individuals with Autism.
