What’s the difference between teaching our students and teaching our autistic students? Not much. In this revealing webinar, author-educator Amanda Yuill will explore strategies that may have been designed for autistic students that can be used to teach all students. You’ll discover how autistic strengths, skills, talents, and interests can aid in learning for the whole class. Amanda will offer ideas for lesson planning, as well as communication, emotional support, and staying safe. Every child can learn. When you know each student as an individual, learning for all increases and improves — and Amanda will help you get there.
