Autism Spectrum Disorder: An Overview for Educators – Free Online Module http://iris.peabody.vanderbilt.edu/module/asd1/
The IRIS Center has released a free online module, Autism Spectrum Disorder: An Overview for Educators (August 2015), which provides information on the early warning signs of ASD, the difference between a medical diagnosis and an educational determination of ASD, the strengths and needs of children with ASD, key team members, how family members might be affected, and strategies teachers can use when working with children with ASD. It includes video examples, practice vignettes, and recorded interviews. For example, see this interview with Ilene Schwartz, who discusses strategies teachers can use in early childhood settings to promote the success of a child with ASD.
