Description

Class Experience

The goal is that students might find friends they would like to keep in touch with after the class is over.
I am autistic with social anxiety myself and have spent the last 10 years of my life working with autistic children as well as children with others disabilities often who also have social anxiety in various capacities. I have been a pre-school teacher, a teacher's aid working one on one and in small groups with children who need extra help, a tutor, an in-home caregiver for a child with severe disabilities, and a community support worker for autistic tweens and teens. I also have an associate's degree in special education. 

In January 2020 I began leading social groups for autistic children on Outschool and now have many different age groups and options ranging from ages 3-18. I also teach several classes about autism and sensory issues all of which have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from parents and students alike. I have been getting parent requests to extend my offerings to students who are not autistic but need a little help with social skills from someone who "gets it". If you have any questions or concerns about my qualifications please message me or read the reviews of some of my classes about autism. 
Students will need to be able to take and post pictures and videos. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Student participation is necessary to get the intended outcome of this class. Some students may need parental help to participate. I ask that all students are aware of being autistic or the possibility of being autistic if not yet officially diagnosed.
