Description

Class Experience

I am an autistic adult who has been working with autistic children and teens for 5 years as a tutor, community support worker, and classroom aide. Not only do I have both personal and professional experience with autism but I also have 10 years of teaching experience and an associate's degree in special education. I have worked with many autistic children and teens who are all in different places on the spectrum and have different, unique, strengths, and challenges. I have also been working with autistic students on Outschool since January, if you have any concerns please feel free to contact me or to read the reviews on any of my other autism-related classes, especially my autism social groups, as they have the most feedback. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I require that all students know that they are autistic. An official diagnosis is not required. 

This may be an emotional topic for some students.
