*AUTISM: Applying Useful Techniques & Instructional Strategies to Maximize Learning

With the increasing numbers of students identified with some sort of autism, classroom teachers and ESP personnel have many questions about autism and the various diagnoses. 



The laws regarding regulations regarding the role of paraeducators working with students with ADHD in delivering educational services, their professional development needs, and issues of supervision will be discussed.  Strategies, interventions, accommodations, and resources are included to help you help a child with ADHD succeed.
