CTL Hour – Oct. 15th
Working with Students on the Autism Spectrum
On Monday, October 15 from 3-4 pm in A2552, we will be hearing from Lauren Schumann from the Office for Students with Disabilities about “Working with Students on the Autism Spectrum.” We will learn a bit about what autism is and how it affects students, and then discuss possible strategies for helping these students in the classroom. Faculty and staff are encouraged to bring examples they have encountered in the classroom to work through as case studies with the group.
