This short video presents research findings that teachers of students on the autistic spectrum are not always able to see that these students are able to learn. The video provides a brief overview about how sharing lived experience anecdotes with teachers enabled them to come to a better understanding of what it means to be on the autistic spectrum, and how the presentations/behaviours of young autistic spectrum students are not always indicative of their potential in life.
If you have any questions or comments please contact me via the comments section. Thanks
If you would like to know more of the strategies to support students on the autistic spectrum, you may want to buy my new text book which provides that why as well as the what.
