Teaching Students w/Autism
Just 20 years ago, we didn’t see students with autism in our classrooms. But today, we teach children with high-functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome right alongside their neurotypical peers. Reaching and teaching these students requires a delicate balancing act: understanding how their brains are wired, helping them turn challenges into opportunities, and learning to enjoy the rich perspective they bring to the classroom.
If you’ve ever had a student who blurted out in class, screamed when some patted his or her shoulder, or rocked back and forth in the chair, you’ll appreciate the lessons ahead. We’ll discover the neurobiology behind these disorders and the way it affects students’ behavior, learning, and thinking. Most important, you’ll learn creative, easy, low-budget strategies to help these kids succeed in the classroom and beyond.
Students MUST enroll through Jackson Township Community Education to participate in the class. Additional fee for the online class is $115. For more information including a schedule of class dates and to register directly online contact Jackson Local Schools at http://www.jtce.org/teachers.htm This class is offered every month through JTCE and has an ongoing registration for credit with Ashland University.
