Description

Class Experience

I am autistic myself and have spent the last 10 years of my life working with autistic children as well as children with others.  disabilities in various capacities. I have been a pre-school teacher, a teacher's aid working one on one and 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 spent a lot of time learning about autism and how autistic tend to view the issues that will be discussed in this class. If you have any questions or concerns about my qualifications please message me or read the reviews of some of my others classes about autism. 



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.
Disclaimer: This class was designed by an autistic adult (myself) and used feedback from other autistics as well. Although I am doing my best to present the views of the majority of the autistic community there are autistics with opposing opinions and I can not claim to speak for the entire autistic community. 
https://www.altogetherautism.org.nz/autism-no-puzzle-nothing-wrong-with-us/ This link explains why most autistics are against the use of the puzzle piece symbol and do not want a "cure" for autism. 

Information for this class has mostly been gathered from years of interacting with the autistic community.
