Event description

Description

The Hidden Curriculum refers to the set of rules and guidelines that children and adults may not be taught but they are assumed to know, understand, and follow. The curriculum includes things that can affect social interactions, school, health and well-being, as well as unspoken rules, slang terminology, metaphors, reading body language, context clues, and more. This information may be intuitive for neurotypical individuals, but it is not for individuals with autism or other special needs.

Join us to learn:

  • How to define the hidden curriculum
  • How the hidden curriculum applies to home, school, and the community
  • How to teach the hidden curriculum across all stages of life
