Educational Strategies for Students with ASD
The Eastern Upper Peninsula Intermediate School District was the host site for the 2011-2013 Statewide Autism Resources and Training Project's Intensive Training Series. The Educational Supports for Students with ASD module provided participants with a foundation of educational strategies that build upon the strengths of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) which lead to successful learning. Participants were provided an opportunity to experience ASD through sensitivity awareness activities which led to a better understanding of the learning challenges for these students. Participants learned to provide curricular accommodations and modifications so students with ASD have access to appropriate grade-level curriculum. A framework for developing an individualized academic modification and grading plan for a student with ASD as well as practice in creating such a plan was also provided.
