Introduction to Autism (5 Hours)

Most of us know someone with autism. This neurodevelopmental condition impacts a student’s ability to communicate, form social skills, and manage sensory challenges.

A person with autism may experience a unique way of thinking, remembering events, reacting, and communicating.

In this online PD course, educators will find tried and tested strategies, tips, real-life examples, and insights to create more inclusive classrooms and help students on the autism spectrum thrive.

  • I loved the flexibility of when and where I could take this class.

  • This is one of the best online courses on ASD. I really enjoyed the videos and the many practical suggestions throughout the course. Information was well organized and also engaging. Thank you!
  • I have learned so much about autism and how to work with students on the spectrum that I had never known before. Although I have not had the experience of working with an autistic child (yet) I feel that I now have the confidence and mind set if the opportunity arose. From what I have read, working with autistic children can be extremely challenging, yet, rewarding as well. This course has given me concrete ideas and techniques to use while working with autistic students. This course has been insightful and taught me so much more than I had already know about autism and how to deal with autistic children.

  • Being a substitute teacher, I have had some opportunities to work with children with Autism. This site helped me find some new ideas and strategies to use the next time I am subbing.
    Megan S.
  • Wow! By far this was the most informative and beneficial course I've taken. Regardless of which students I may be working, this helps me to have a better understanding of why a student may be doing something or other, and gives me pause to be a bit more aware of particular needs (which is asking for a bit more understanding and a lot more patience on my part.)

  • This course was so helpful both in my classroom and personal life as I realized how the techniques I learned can be used for people in general, not just students with autism.
    John D.
  • This course has helped me have a better understanding of what a typical autistic child goes through a school day. Glad I took the class thank you.

    Laurie K.
  • There was a lot of valuable information in this class! I learned a lot and took 17 pages of notes that I intend to keep for a reference. Thank you!
    Ginger K.
  • I really enjoyed this course. It provided me new insights, interventions, and ideas in providing a better education for students with autism. I am currently serving as a special education teaching assistant at a school, and I will share it with the rest of my staff.
    Dain T.
  • Thanks. I raised an autistic son. Your information is relevant and helpful.
    Jason M.
  • The class was repetitive in a GOOD way! Reviewed ideas helped me to connect them with situations and commit to memory. I learned so much! I have not taken any special education classes and this gave an excellent overview that I can readily apply to autistic children in my life.
    Victoria G.
  • I learned a wealth of information which will be extremely helpful in my classroom. Price reasonable. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the technology so easy. Would highly recommend to other professionals. Thank you for this valuable way to earn license renewal points!
    Karen F.
  • Having just completed the Autism course, I am so glad I took it. I now realize that a child who was diagnosed as dysgraphic has a more complex profile and is indeed autistic. The content of the class will allow me to better serve my students and support their families as we work together. This course underscores the importance of regular, updated neuropsych/learner profile evaluations being completed for children and their families.
