This course is aimed at informing and raising awareness on the characteristics of young learners within the autism spectrum disorder and how they may present unique instructional differentiation in educational settings. Practical and teacher-friendly educational strategies in helping learners within the spectrum achieve optimal success in school will also be covered.

In other words, this course explores the learning needs of young learners with autism. A sharing on several ways to support young learners within the spectrum will be offered.

The course is suitable for anyone who is interested in understanding and learning more about teaching young children with autism or wants to develop a basic understanding of autism.
