Autism Spectrum Disorders provides teachers of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other developmental disabilities with important background information, historical context, etiological underpinnings, and characteristics of ASD that may impact learning. The course focuses on functional academics, functional life skills, environmental supports, and real-world practice that promotes lifespan success. You will learn best social practices that are evidence-based, child-specific, and meaningfully integrated. Early social vulnerabilities in individuals with ASD set the stage for a wide range of later learning problems—this course provides educators with the tools necessary to proactively intervene.
