“About Autism Questions Teachers Ask:
A student with autism will be in your classroom. Don’t worry – you’ve got this.
One in every 59 children has an autism diagnosis. Once thought rare, now every teacher will have an autistic child in their classroom. Maybe not last year, but this coming year….
Our rooms are full of diverse learners. Sadly, most university programs don’t prepare teachers for this reality. With all those bright little faces gazing at you, the needs can seem overwhelming. How can you be everything to each one?
This book is for you. It will calm those panicky feelings. You can do this.
By learning about autism and the characteristics that affect being in a classroom, you can tailor strategies that will help that learner, you and the other kids who are in your care. You cannot turn your room upside down for one kid but you can use strategies that are doable and will help many of the learners.
