I agree, this module has been most helpful in giving us actual tools to use in our future careers in order to best serve the students with ASD that will be in our classrooms. I also think that it is important to remember what we learned last week that some of these skills will develop at different times and cannot be generalized across all students. Literacy is not just reading and writing, but many areas that span a wide variety of skills that our students will need to learn to be successful.

        Until this week, I would never have thought about not only the different steps/stages of reading and comprehending, but of the different components that are useful that are often overlooked. For... more

        Yes! It is important to not generalize all ASD students as learning in the same way and having the same skills at the same age. I like how we have learned in the class. It has started out to... more
    • Strengths and Weaknesses - Amanda Wallace, Wed Jun 10 13:01
      I also found this module very helpful. This will benefit many teachers to know exactly how to determine students strengths and weaknesses, and how to best plan instruction with those in mind.

          Cynthia, I can't even begin to tell you how much we rely on assessments within the social work field. Assessments are our key to finding out the information we need in order to advocate for, help,... more
