Printed material from the Symposium presented by Mary Schillinger, M.S., EDLD
Serving the needs of students with high-functioning autism can be challenging and sometimes contentious. Learn the essentials to develop and sustain a continuum of effective, legally compliant, and defensible programs and services. These materials provide strategies to develop and maintain individualized services across settings. You get sample schedules to help school staffs offer a variety of placements to students on the autism spectrum and ways to embed ABA into general education settings. These materials also take you through the structure of supportive and successful autism programs, including case law relating to students with Asperger syndrome and programming, as well as how to address issues of bullying and harassment of and by students with Asperger syndrome.
Symposium 4 was held April 26, 2015 in Denver, Colo., in conjunction with the 36th National Institute on Legal Issues of Educating Individuals with Disabilities® (April 26 - 29, 2015).
