TEACHING STUDENTS WITH AUTISM IN THE INCLUSIVE CLASSROOM K-12
This online course will help teachers and administrators K-12 build a specific set of evidence-based practices, methodologies, and interventions for teaching and working with children with autism spectrum disorders. The participants will define autism, understand inclusive schooling, learn to create a comfortable classroom, discuss the importance of social belonging, learn how to develop and implement meaningful instructional strategies for students with autism in all content areas, sustain positive behavior supports, and collaborate with parents and professionals.
