Class Experience

As an autistic adult who also has learning disabilities, I have had to learn to advocate for myself in various situations such as at the hospital, in college and at work. I have also advocated for children I was a community support worker or classroom aide for in order to make sure they got their unique needs met in school, at youth group, and in various other situations. I have my associate's degree in special education, 10 years of teaching experience, 8 years of experience working with special needs children, and 5 years of experience working professionally with autistic children.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I ask that all students are aware of their autism diagnosis or the possibility they may autistic if they do not have an official diagnosis.
