General education teachers, including special area teachers, often have a need for more extensive knowledge and understanding of children with specific disabilities. Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is perhaps one of the more complex disabilities in the field of special education and represents a population of children who have great variability in their cognitive abilities, communication competencies, and behavioral and sensory needs. This webinar provides information that can help you to better understand children on the spectrum, supplying evidenced-based strategies that can be employed in the art classroom to provide a successful experience for all.
