Course Description

Broadened public awareness of autism and other associated spectrum disorders, combined with continuing research, means that more students than ever before are being identified with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) present a perplexing challenge for school professionals. Literally dozens of interventions and treatments are available, so how does one know which intervention strategy works best for any given child or situation? This course was developed to respond directly to the extraordinary difficulties school professionals face in selecting and applying appropriate, effective interventions and treatments for the children in their care. This course includes information on over 1001 great ideas for teaching students with Autism Spectrum Disorders including: sensory integration, communication, language, behavior as well as daily living and social skills strategies and considerations. In addition, the history, causes and treatments of ASD are also highlighted. Comprehensive in scope, this course captures the major issues of ASD and makes them understandable and useable, even to those new to spectrum disorders. The projected outcome of this course is to provide classroom teachers with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies needed to educate students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
