Today, every school in America has students who have been diagnosed with ASD (Austim Spectrum Disorder)—a neurological disorder on the autism spectrum. The effects of this disorder vary widely, but it is important for every teacher to understand how to recognize behaviors that may indicate ASD.
In this course, you take away strategies for working effectively with ASD students. And you will find out how to work effectively with parents to create the most positive learning environments for children and teens with this disorder.
The course is geared for K-12 teachers, but it is also relevant for counselors, faculty in higher education, parents and anyone else interested in understanding this important issue.
3 Grad Credits (Optional): From Framingham State University, a leading provider of K-12 teacher training. Requirements are to complete the four Unit Quizzes at 80% level (you may retake them til you reach 80%); make at least one comment in each of the four Unit discussions; and write a 1-2 page paper based on the course, submitting it within two weeks after the course ends. PRDV 79520, additional $225 cost, payable to LERN. Info sent after you register for the course, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
