Due to COVID-19, students and teachers have had to adapt to learning and teaching from home. While remote learning allows students to continue their education, it can be challenging for young students with autism and other developmental disabilities to attend to the screen and engage with the curriculum. In this edWebinar, we discuss strategies to help early learners with autism engage with synchronous remote instruction through evidence-based practices. A focus of this presentation will be on teaching skills in receptive language, expressive language, social and play, and pre-academics. This edWebinar includes video examples of teachers coaching caregivers to provide consistent instruction to their students. Viewers will also learn strategies on teaching students to be more independent in daily functional routines.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK through elementary teachers and school leaders.
