This week we are focusing on some of the basics of autism. It is important that as advocates for your peer, you have an understanding of why they are the way they are. I also hope that you will start to think about the families of your peer and what it means for them to have a child/sibling with autism. We will be discussing this further later in the semester.
Make sure you read the article from the Autism Speaks website (located in the Homework link). You also need to watch the following video and incorporate information from it into your assignment.
Don't forget to check the homework page to see your assignments for this week. You do not have a lot to do this week because I am seeing you twice (Case Conferences!) and I want you to focus on your potential "blog post" (hint hint, make it good!). Have a great week! Please see me if you have any questions or concerns.
