Structured TeachingUniversity of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Division TEACCH

  • Often referred to as TEACCH Program

  • TEACCH was created in the 1970s by the then UNC professor of psychiatry and psychology, Eric Schopler.

  • Schopler recognized the importance of relationships/partnerships

    “In an era when parents were blamed for causing what was felt to be a psychological problem, Eric was one of the first to use empirical research to establish the true, neurological basis of autism and its effective treatment--treatment that included parents as co-therapists.”

Time organization

Time Organization

Time organization1

Time Organization

Students with developmental disabilities have problems with:

  • Sequential Memory

  • Organization of Time

    Visual schedules let the students know what activities will take place and in what sequence (Schopler et al., 1995) and assist them in predicting events, lessening their anxiety.

Time organization2

Time Organization

The research says:

Activity schedules have become widely used in classrooms around the world to provide clear structure and thus ease the difficulty of transition from one environment to another, reduce problem behavior, and increase time engaged in learning.”

Olley, 2005 p. 867
