Use a total communication approach. If a student uses pictures to communicate, for instance, he or she can also be introduced to gestures and signs.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.


The power of being welcomed

How can you bring this kind of inclusive energy, sentiment, or spirit to your school? Community?

    I’m looking for the video but it’s not showing up. I watched it a month or so ago and would love to use it for some autism PD I’m doing for teachers. I bookmarked it so that I could come back to it but it’s not here! Was it taken down? Looking forward to share it with colleagues. Great video :)
