Demystifying the Classroom
Are you a classroom educator, resource educator, early childhood educator, education assistant, BI, BC or other professional currently supporting a child with autism that is struggling in the classroom setting? Would you like to have a better understanding of autism, as well as current best practices in supporting children with autism at school?
Demystifying the Classroom is appropriate for those supporting children with autism or related needs ages 3 through 12. It will provide participants with knowledge and tools to support the social-emotional and friendship needs of children with autism and their peers in the school or community setting. It will also prepare participants to apply the Friend 2 Friend Autism Demystification Puppet Program package curriculum with the children they support.
