INCL 606 Understanding the Autism Spectrum Disorders Within the Inclusive Classroom Setting



3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder worldwide, with CDC data showing that 1:88 children in the U.S. alone is diagnosed with some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This course will explore ASD and the impact that this disorder can have on how students learn. We will use research-based practices to help educators accommodate the needs of these exceptional learners within the inclusive classroom setting; facilitate engagement with peers; and design educational programs to enable students with ASD to reach their maximum potential. We will cover ASD recognition in children; factors affecting learning and development; instructional strategies and the adaptation of the classroom environment; collaboration with special education teachers and other support staff; behavior management in the classroom; and positive behavioral supports.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
