As a teacher in higher education, I love working with teachers who are just starting out in the field. Their enthusiasm and willingness to learn is so heartening!
I put together this video lecture for them to learn more about the Autism (ASD) evaluation for our state of Oregon. I decided to publish it on my blog so parents/caretakers and others can learn more as well!
When we look at high quality interventions for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), we want to learn the foundational SIX EBPs first! When teachers are able to intervene and use strategies with fidelity, students have better outcomes!
This is one of my new lectures that I am posting here. I hope to empower and teach new teachers and parents.
I would love to hear how you are able to incorporate these foundational interventions into your work with students!
Schools are closed due to the virus and kids are all learning at home. School is being delivered remotely and some kids are having a hard time adapting to this change.
Benefit of Social Narratives:
Social Narratives aka Social Stories are widely used supports for students who have Autism Spectrum Disorder. All kids can benefit from this simple and easy to use evidence based practice!

I have school at my house now
My first grader did not understand why he was all of a sudden having school at his house. I made a social story to help him. Hopefully this story will help others understand how to complete school work at home and that they are not alone!
