Talk to students about collaborative work. Provide reminders about what cooperation looks like (e.g., materials being shared) and sounds like (e.g., “What do you think?”).

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.
