It is important for me as an autism specialist and neurotypical person to understand and share the first-person experience of (actually) autistic people.
Marcus shared what his life is like as a college student with autism and what life was like for him growing up autistic. He is a great role model to our young students and children on the spectrum. Thank you Marcus for taking the time with me and sharing your experiences.
Thank you for watching and subscribing!

My behavior support class this term learned about the benefits of using positive reinforcement with students. Some students need extrinsic motivation (reinforcement) so we created a list of 40 great reinforcers you can use in your classroom.
We split the reinforcers into categories: Edible, tangible, activity and social reinforcers.

A child who has difficulties going to bed, falling asleep, staying asleep, can make night time a horrible ordeal!
Night waking and challenges in falling asleep are common in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I have used the textbook A Work in Progress as a reference to share a sleep protocol to help children and their families.
The protocol consists of 4 steps:
