Interventions for children with autism typically emphasize the interaction between the teacher and student. However, the learning environment-its structure, stimuli, and teaching materials-may also contribute to the effectiveness of interventions.

However, educators should recognize that structured environments are only one piece of the array interventions necessary to teach students with autism.
