Proposal for Presentation

Autism is a heterogeneous neuro-developmental disorder that often creates much confusion about what it ‘looks like’. Unclear reports of behavioral observations can often delay school based early diagnosis and intervention for the “not clearly autistic”. This session is a real-life exploration of the DSM-5 Autism criteria focused on answering the question “what might autism look like in a general education environment?” The presentation aims to highlight best practices towards strengthening Pre-K/Elementary school teachers’ skills to 1) More clearly identify characteristics of autism and 2) implement research based educational supports/interventions for children with autism in their classrooms.
