Description

Class Experience

I am an autistic adult who has been working with autistic children for over 5 years. I have my associate's degree in special education and am passionate about teaching children about autism and how to support their autistic peers. Every autistic person is different so it is important to add that aside from my own experience as an autistic adult I have worked with over 500 autistic children, both in-person and online, all of whom are in different places on the spectrum and have unique strengths and challenges. I advocated for myself and others to get needed accommodations and even successfully petitioned to get rules changed at my college when those rules negatively imparting disabled college students. I have been teaching classes mainly for autistic students on Outschool since January 2020. If you have any concerns or questions concerning my qualification I would suggest looking at the reviews from some of my other classes. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is not therapy or counseling, I will not be telling students what to do or solving their problems, I will just be sharing my lived and professional experience and encouraging students to brainstorm suggestions for one another.
