The planning process while considering initiation of nonformal or formal education in children with autistic behavior should take into consideration the extent of the autistic profile of a child, comorbidities, response to therapy, language and learning progress a child makes, and the adaptations which a teacher is willing to make in the classroom. The schooling options for such children include regular schools with a special learning environment, special schools, and the open schooling system. An early learning program that bridges home and school can help children adapt to a school program and also provides periodic supplementation and support for their learning process. The involvement of school teachers, parents and siblings is an important contribution to the learning process.
