Today’s classrooms represent the diversity found within the broader societies in which we live. In most places across the world, we have seen a significant increase in the number of students who live with Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome. Educators across the nation are recognizing the importance for ALL students of having this diversity in our schools and classrooms. We have greatly improved our skills in teaching these diverse groups of students in the general education classroom. Students within the Autism/Asperger’s Spectrum can and do succeed in the general education setting. This workshop will provide an introduction to the new learnings and views in the field of autism/sensory and movement differences.
Presented by Nanette A. Negri, Lisa Ladson, & Jeremy Gilomen, self advocate
