The Educator Fact Sheet offers teachers an easy go-to guide for including their students with autism. It lists ways that autism can make learning difficult, simple accommodations and modifications that can make the classroom more autism-friendly, and interventions that have worked in other classrooms and are supported by research. No one child with autism is the same, so differentiation still remains important. Still, these evidence-based methods can help teachers at all levels support their students with autism in the classroom.

The Educator Fact Sheet answers the following questions:
  • What is autism?
  • How can autism make learning difficult?
  • What changes can I make?
  • Whom should I talk to?
  • What does inclusion look like?
  • Which programs and strategies work?
  • Where can I learn more?
