Understanding Autism: A Guide for Secondary School Teachers (Part 1)

The first of four segments ("Characteristics") in Understanding Autism: A Guide for Secondary Teachers. The DVD is designed to provide general education teachers with strategies for supporting their middle and high school students with autism.

At the end of this segment, viewers will be able to: (1) Describe how autism impacts learners; (2) Indicate how the characteristics of autism impacts individuals in a school setting; and (3) Understand that autism manifests itself differently in individual learners.

The DVD was produced by the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) in collaboration with Fairfax County (VA) Public Schools, and made possible by grants from the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation and the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism.
