The Inclusive Child Care Environment: ASD
Children on the autism spectrum bring many joys to our child care. However, they may require accommodations, modifications, and support that differ from neurotypical children in order to best experience and share these joys. Often, with an ASD diagnosis, these children receive an extra support person. However, children who are pre-assessment (or waiting for assessment) are left struggling without formal support while educators try their best to fill in the gaps. The Inclusive Environment will give educators the foundational knowledge of an autism diagnosis, the implications for social emotional learning, and insight how to best support children on the spectrum in an inclusive manner.
