    Solution : Children with down syndrome can be integrated into mainstream but depending on their intellectual functioning level.

Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication handicapped CHildren Method (TEACCH) emphasizes on using skills that children already possess to enable them to become independent. 2. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) emphasizes on one-to-one sessions in discrete trial training (DTT) to develop cognitive, social, behavioral, fine motor, play, social and self-help skills. The technique involves structured presentation of tasks from most simple to more complex, breaking them down into small sub-skills, and then teaching each sub-skill, intensely, one at a time. 3. Verbal Behavior Analysis (VBA) is an addition to ABA and is also based on breaking down and teaching language in functional units unlike the teaching of language based on grammar. 4. Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS) is built on the fact that non-verbal children with autism may attempt to spontaneously use objects to communicate. People with autism tend to be visual learners, and a visual means of communication can help them to understand and use the process of communication.
