Children with autism bring many joys to our classrooms. However, they may require accommodations, modifications, and supports that differ from neurotypical children in order to best experience and share these joys. Often, these children receive a support person. However, for children who are awaiting their assessment or underdiagnosed without formal supports, educators are left trying their best to fill in the gaps. In the cases where a support person is in place, a lack of understanding and training in neurodiverse children and support among the team leads to a divide within the classroom. This divide is felt between the educators, the children, and the care. “The Inclusive Classroom” will give educators the foundational knowledge of an autism diagnosis, the implications for social emotional learning, and insight how to best support children on the spectrum in an inclusive manner.
Topics covered: autism, routines, functions of behaviour, positive language, Sensory processing, and AAC.
