Autism After the Pandemic

Autism After the Pandemic

I can’t believe it’s been 22 weeks since we’ve posted a blog/video!!  If you were experiencing anything like I was, you did not need one more email with information you didn’t need at that moment to add to your stress and overload.

I was trying to keep up learning new technology like Zoom.   I was trying to figure out how I would do my normally in-person professional development in a virtual environment.  I was trying to help teachers navigate this new normal.  My guess is that you were doing something similar, so learning some new strategy or getting excited about a new resource was most likely not a priority!

Was I right?

Now, we’re back to school. Not in the normal sense, but in the new normal.  Our district is operating on a hybrid model.  Half of our students come Monday and Wednesday and the other half come Tuesday and Thursday, then all students have elearning on Fridays.

We’re trying our best to do this right and so far, so good!

I have so many concerns for our students with special needs.  We are lucky in Westfield Washington Schools that our special programs are operating 4 days a week in-person and one day a week using elearning.

Today I am highlighting a tool for parents of students with ASD.  Change is not easy for many of us, but change can be absolutely debilitating for our students on the autism spectrum.

Take a look at what two veterans in the world of autism decided to do!

Thank you for sticking with me through this long hiatus.  We’re back with tips, resources and strategies to help make your job easier when educating and/or living with a child who has special needs.

Let’s keep showing up with our love, our commitment and our grit for those students who need us most!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!

Carla
