This year has been such a rollercoaster ride in the field of education and speech pathology. Many are still doing virtual sessions and haven’t gone back to in-office visits yet.
One particular group that has been impacted by virtual learning is students on the autism spectrum. In today’s episode, I am chatting with my guest Nikki Robertson about how we can best support students with autism virtually.
Nikki is the creator of Teaching Autism and has 10 years of experience working within the field of special education, specifically with students on the autism spectrum. She created Teaching Autism in order to spread awareness, helpful information, tips, and resources with other teachers.
In This Episode You’ll Discover:
- Why storytelling is not just for storytime
- How to look at virtual learning from a new perspective
- The upside perspective of distance learning
- Why you have to meet students where they are at virtually
- Ideas for sending home mail to your students
- How to utilize your assistants to connect with your students
You are sure to take away so many concrete tips to incorporate into your sessions with students who have autism — both in-person and virtual. I hope you take time to tune in and when you do, reach out and let me know what you thought! I love hearing from my listeners.
