Air Date:  Oct 16, 2018

The number of young children diagnosed with autism is rapidly growing. Early childhood educators can benefit from knowing what these early signs of autism are and how they impact learning and interacting with others so they can help them be successful in their classrooms.

This webinar will provide hands-on strategies and tools that can be incorporated into the early childhood classroom to increase engagement and build connections for young children with autism. Three special educators will share effective strategies from the literature and their own teaching experience on how to embed and facilitate motivating opportunities for engagement that lead to social interactions and learning for all children.

You'll Learn:

  • The most prominent characteristics that impact young children with autism’s learning and social behavior
  • Strategies to build social engagement and learning for young children with autism
  • The importance of being joyful and using a child's interests to connect and build a relationship.
