Expectations and Strategies for Including High Functioning ASD Students in Middle and High School 

A Free Workshop with 2 Department of Education Professional Development Hours

About the Workshop
This workshop was originally designed for regular education teachers who are including high functioning students with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome in their classes. It is also appropriate for parents and other caregivers with children who are mainstreamed and who may be considering higher education for their children. There will be a discussion of steps to success, derived from the Organization for Autism Research Educator’s Guide. Strategies for collaboration and modifications will be presented. Specific objectives are to gain an awareness of:
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders and their characteristics and features
  • Classroom Challenges
  • Challenging Behaviors and their Functions
  • Strategies for Success
This workshop is also appropriate for “specials” teachers such as physical education, music, art, etc.
