Autism EDU

Autism Awareness Acceptance Curriculum

One of the most vulnerable student populations is the autistic. Misunderstood and often socially awkward, they are subject to bullying and isolation. You may have students on the autism spectrum in your classroom who are struggling to communicate and interact with their peers.

Autism EDU is a collection of innovative educational tools to introduce autism in the classroom and help you create an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and valued. These tools were developed to capture and engage students’ attention, ignite their curiosities and inspire discussions. The focus is on ‘abilities’ instead of ‘disabilities’ and ‘similarities’ over ‘differences’ for better understanding and connection.

THEMES: Bullying, Understanding Autism and Aspergers Syndrome, Friendship

The module’s cornerstone is a story about a boy who is different. The reader sees inside his imagination where he is the superhero leader of the Mighty League of crime fighters. Contrast it with the real view of his school day where he encounters a bully on the school playground. Readers discover through the hero’s journal entries that he has Aspergers Syndrome and what it means to be someone on the autism spectrum. This award-winning tale is based on a true story.
