Research indicates that many teachers in the general education classroom feel unprepared to serve the growing number of students with autism. We developed the Curriculum in a Box to provide school districts, schools, and teachers with the foundational knowledge and effective classroom strategies they need to be better able to teach students with autism. Designed for flexibility, the program can be used by administrators for small staff meetings, facilitators for large professional development sessions, or individuals as a refresher.
What is the Curriculum in a Box?
The Curriculum in a Box is a comprehensive professional development program designed to provide middle and high school teachers with the knowledge and evidence-based strategies needed to support their students with autism in the general education classroom.
This resource includes everything teachers need to host a professional development session: two 75-minute PowerPoint training presentations, to be used together or separately, with video clips, participant handouts, activity worksheets, and scripted facilitator notes. It also includes the Understanding Autism: A Guide for Secondary School Teachers, along with two guidebooks, in English and Spanish, and a quick reference sheet:
- Professional Development Presentation (fully scripted with videos, slides, and notes)
- Training manual
- Two (2) Life Journey Through Autism guidebooks
- Educator’s reference sheet
All of the materials are accessible online. If you wish to order a hard copy, we encourage you to first view the materials online:
