Asperger Syndrome: Success in the Mainstream Classroom - Video
Audience: Teachers, counselors and parents of students who have Asperger Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder - Level 1.
This video features Interviews with psychologist Dr. Jed Baker, parents, regular and special education teachers, an instructional aide and a case manager/social worker -- all describing specific steps that have worked for them in guiding and teaching children with AS in middle school through high school classes. The program focuses on social as well as academic success -- and on making the classroom experience positive for the student, teacher, and classmates.
You can think of this as "Asperger Syndrome 101." At 44 minutes, it's the perfect length to view during an available class period (or to use as a teacher in-service program) and it points the way toward other resources to help generate continued success.
Length: 44 minutes
