Sometimes we all need a little pick-me-up in the afternoon. So this event will serve Iced Tea & Cookies for the participants--we will have tea at 3:00!! And while we are enjoying our afternoon break, we will watch a webinar on how to help our students who are diagnosed with Autism. Janet Griffith will host a brief Q & A following the webinar.
Students on the Autism spectrum can add diversity of thinking to our classrooms. There can also be inherent challenges from students who understand the world very differently from a typical student. We will discuss students on the Autism spectrum, give ideas on classroom management and appropriate accommodations. This webinar will be directed to teaching faculty.
- Participants will learn general issues of students on the autism spectrum.
- Participants will understand new ways to manage behaviors which may interrupt their teaching.
- Participants will learn how to bring out the unique abilities in students on the spectrum will appropriate accommodations.
