I got such passionate responses (both negative and positive) from readers of this blog and especially my colleagues here at the Scottish Rite Clinic that I think if might be interesting to continue the discussion. I thought I would link a video of the system being used in a Kindergarten class where there is a slightly more natural interaction style and it is easier to imagine how a real class would respond to this style.
My feeling, however, is that some teachers and students would love this system and some would hate it and not very many would be neutral about it. Another important issue, of course, is whether it would work with any particular child with ASD with appropriate modifications. Would it be better or worse than other teaching styles?
