Create a classroom environment where students feel safe making mistakes, taking risks and trying new things.

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.

Idea #15: Go home

Posted on April 15, 2013 in Autism

Another idea from The Autism Checklist, by Paula Kluth and John Shouse

If you are struggling with a particular student and feel you have ‘tried everything’, consider a home visit to see how he or she is supported during the rest of the day. Even though the environment and demands are very different at school, if you have an open mind, you may take away ideas for behavior, communication, social, and academic supports that you had never before considered. Such a visit can also help to strengthen your relationships with families and send a message that you value their expertise.
