    Abstract

    Teaching material is one of the keys for teachers to conduct a teaching-learning activity in the classroom. The materials are the source for teachers to teach and for students to learn. This research focuses on three matters, 1) Describing the English teaching learning process for autistic learners at SLB YPAC Semarang 2) How teachers deliver the materials to the autistics students at SLB YPAC Semarang 3) Developing the materials for encouraging the students to be more involved and concentrated. This study was aimed to develop a set of suitable English teaching-learning materials. This final project used the research and development (R&D) to develop the materials. The materials were validated by two experts to come to the final product. This research was conducted at SLB YPAC Semarang involving the students of 8th grade with special needs (in this case is autism). The data were collected from classroom and checklist observations, questionnaire and interview with teacher. The author also gave a set of questions for teacher to give his response on the final materials. Those data collection resulted that teacher and students actually faced the same problem which was the absence of a set of suitable materials for English lesson. The writer was aware of the special characteristics of students with autism, some steps must be taken before she developed the materials. The first step taken was to review the syllabus, in this stage the writer evaluated which part of the syllabus must be developed. Syllabus review delivered the writer into the second step that was to make the lesson plans which was purposed to help teacher in conducting the classroom activity management. The third step was to integrate the students’ needs with the materials design. The integration of the materials then led to materials development for encouraging the students’ involvement and concentration. The writer assumed there were some considerations the teacher should pay attention in using the materials, those are : 1) the teachers should give the instruction clearly to the students, 2) the teachers should be more creative in developing materials for the students 3) the teacher should enhance his knowledge of materials development for students with special needs 4) Every student has different characteristics, therefore the materials should be applied in the basis of students’ capacity and ability.
