It is indisputable: Educators and students have faced unprecedented challenges during the 2020-21 school year. In this edWebinar, we reflect on some of these larger challenges, including transitioning between remote and in-person learning, effectively supporting families and caregivers, and providing consistent instruction for students with autism and other developmental disabilities. Next, we consider the lessons we learned as a result of navigating these challenges so that they may be turned into opportunities for the future. These lessons include:

  • Technology as a tool for providing dynamic student instruction
  • Family collaboration and caregiver coaching
  • Flexibility in programming
  • Consistency in instruction and robust progress monitoring
  • Sustainability, equity, and building longevity

Viewers will learn about innovative strategies and tools used to address the challenges from the 2020-21 school year and will learn how to incorporate these strategies during future learning opportunities, no matter the circumstance. We share a variety of free resources to support positive learning outcomes for students with autism, regardless of their current learning environment.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
