Abstract

Students with special needs, especially in this study; autism, are a big issue in education field. As there is no regulation yet for education for these students, there is a big gap between teachers and students. This study aimed to investigate the implementation of Differentiated Instructions (DI) used by the teachers to teach students with autism. This study used qualitative methods and the instruments were observations checklist and interviews checklist. There were 3 classes being observed (grade 2, grade 3, and grade 6) and 2 English teachers being interviewed, where one of the English teachers taught 2 Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) students in different class. Further, the results of the observations showed that different assessments were given towards ASD students based on their ability. In addition, as a part of DI, the presence of the paraprofessional, or teaching aids, helped ASD students finish their worksheets given by the English teachers. From the interviews, it was found that DI helped ASD students in accomplishing all in-class English assignments and it helped ASD students follow the language of instructions. Moreover, as it is not an easy job to deal with different ability students, it is suggested that teachers could make various learning activities and some additional plans. Teachers were suggested to create simplified worksheets and instructions for ASD students. Therefore, this study tries to give a wider perception about the implementation of DI for ASD students, especially in English class.
