Last week 25 teachers, PreK – 8, participated in a training designed to help the participants gain a better understanding of the core characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), identify how those characteristics of a student impact performance in the school context. In addition, the participants learned many evidence-based strategies in which they can apply to students with Autism in their regular education classrooms. The presenter spent the majority of the afternoon discussing strategies to enhance performance in academics, social communication, and behavior communication. Lots of learning was happening in this jam packed day of ASD training. A follow up training is being planned with our trainer from the Autism Society to come back with additional strategies and dive deeper in the world of ASD!
