AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS 101
Need to learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs)? Want to learn additional teaching techniques to best help all students succeed? THIS 101 is for you! We discuss the history, characteristics, specific problem areas, and basic intervention strategies for students with Autism and Asperger Syndrome. Educators leave this session better prepared to support learning for students identified with ASDs.
UNDERSTANDING ASPERGER SYNDROME FOR GENERAL EDUCATION TEACHERS
The incidence of identification of students with Asperger Syndrome has increased significantly since 2000. When all educators are equipped with knowledge and resources for teaching all children, more children will achieve at high levels. It is vital for general education teachers to learn about the history, characteristics, specific problem areas, and basic intervention supports they may use to help students with Asperger Syndrome be successful in the classroom.
UNDERSTANDING THE YOUNG CHILD WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS (AGES 0-4)
In Special Education, early identification is key to unlocking the necessary resources and supports to help minimize gaps in development and learning. Participants review the characteristics, specific problem areas, and provide basic intervention strategies for very young children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Successful application of evidence-based practices can improve the functionality and development of social/communication skills.
AUTISM AND AGGRESSION: LEARNING TO C.O.P.E.
Students identified as having Autism Spectrum Disorders may have behaviors that appear defiant or disobedient. This may be due to executive functioning problems caused by a need to be taught differently. Educators who have been trained to use C.O.P.E. strategies can help all children learn.
