I have been bringing this up incessantly because the start of the year is the perfect time to get this going. It’s much easier to start the year strong and on the right foot than retrace your steps and add this in later. That being said – if you are reading this mid-way through the year, it’s still not too late. Start now. In the start of the year there are some natural opportunities for staff training and it’s essential to grab on to those.
Whole School Mini-Presentation
So it’s time to do a little whole school training. I made a 5 slide mini-presentation. It’s barely even a presentation, guys. It’s 5 slides. You can do this. This presentation explains your classroom, what the autism diagnosis means, what inclusion can look like, and how to respond to challenging behaviors. Teaching your colleagues about this can drastically change the environment of your school and the success of your year. Get the editable powerpoint here.
