Hey Hey Hey SLPs! Today I am talking about things that I have learned from my autistic students. It’s Autism Acceptance Month and I wanted to share some reflections that I have had with working alongside my Autistic students.Many of the lessons I have learned has helped me serve all my students better, but I wanted to highlight specifically what I have learned from supporting the Autistic community.
In this episode you’ll hear:

 

  • Functional communication is more important than academic skills. 
  • Share what they can do with the team rather than always focusing on what they can’t do. 
  • It takes a team to support Autistic students well, so involve them!
  • Incorporate their passions and interests into your sessions
  • Just because they didn’t like a toy or activity doesn’t mean you can’t re-introduce it in future sessions. (doggy house, heavy work)
