Support for Educators

School is critical for autistic students to develop academic, social, and life skills necessary for independence. Are your students supportive and understanding of their autistic classmates? Are you comfortable addressing challenging behaviors in the classroom?

Next to family and friends, few people have a greater influence on children than their teachers. OAR offers free resources and grant opportunities to educators to help support autistic students in the classroom and foster a positive classroom culture of acceptance.
