Are you a teacher, parent, family member or friend
of a child with autism?
I’m so glad you’ve found my website because I want to support you any way I can. I am a semi-retired elementary and special needs teacher with a strong passion for children with autism. My experience includes teaching in five states in public and private schools, as well as working one-on-one for 15 years. Over the last five years I’ve been privileged to teach and encourage parents, teachers and medical professionals in several countries about autism and special needs children. Many have asked for further help and encouragement in coping with their situations. My response is to publish this new website and blog.
http://www.autismparentsteachers.com will equip you with practical information and insights about autism, and I hope you will join in the discussions as well. To begin, I will be covering topics such as:
- What are the signs and symptoms of autism?
- Understanding and responding to the child with autism.
- How can a teacher help autistic children thrive?
- Common questions from parents and teachers
Each of these topics will be developed through various articles illustrated with real life stories. My prayer is that you will find practical help, hope and encouragement for the challenges you face.
Supporting YOU on your journey with autism
