Supporting Students with Autism in the School Setting
With an increase in the number of students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) there is an urgent need to improve the quality of educational programs for this population of students. This workshop will assist schools in determining site needs in order to support students with ASD in general education classes and other educational environments.
Participants will be able to:
• Gain a greater understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders and the potential impacts on learning and behavior
• Discover the essential elements necessary for establishing a positive school climate that addresses the needs of student with Autism
• Implement strategies in the classroom and develop practices that support individualized needs of students with Autism in the classroom
This is a 2 hour training.
Site-Based Trainings may be requested via your SELPA Program Specialist with a minimum of 10 participants at your school site. Should you wish to have a Site-Based Training, but do not have 10 participants, the SELPA may be able to pair your LEA’s needs with other local SELPA Partners in order to offer the training at your site.
