Description

The number of children being diagnosed with Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is on the rise. This is creating increasing demands on the educational system and its most valuable asset, the teacher.

This class will provide useful and practical resources for ALL teachers.

Students with ASD differ from their peers in a variety of ways, though they may outperform them in certain areas. Some have stronger rote abilities and can do spatial, matching and perceptual tasks with greater ease than their peers. Some may excel at mathematics and science. The task for the teacher is to know that the student with ASD will have a mixed ability of strengths and weaknesses. In the best classroom, the teacher focuses on the student’s strengths while teaching to the specific weaknesses.

A good teacher will always develop an interest in their students. A good teacher in an integrated classroom will also need to have an understanding of autism. This class will provide you will ideas to assist ALL children.

Who this course is for:
  • Teachers, teacher's aides, OT, PT, nurses, health care aides, human service workers, direct support workers, early childhood professionals, special education teachers, SpEd teachers, Inclusion teachers, Speech Therapist

I've let you take several quizzes along the way that have not been graded, just to help you check your knowledge. Now, however; I really want to test your knowledge thus far. This will help me to understand if I have helped you to learn information about the student with autism in the inclusive classroom.
