Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. People with ASD may behave, communicate, interact, and learn in ways that are different from other people. Abilities of people with ASD can vary significantly.
Our Autism Acceptance program is designed to teach elementary and middle school students about their autistic peers. The program is centered around an illustrated booklet that tells the story about a new student, an autistic boy, through the eyes of a typical peer. The story teaches children that autistic students may think differently but are of equal worth.
Our Autism Acceptance program is designed to increase awareness of autism among students from grades K-8. With greater knowledge of autism, our youth will learn to see the person first rather than focus on a classmate’s disability. By increasing students’ acceptance of differences, our Autism Acceptance program creates a more inclusive classroom and overall sense of community.
Our presentation can be done at your location (local venues only) or virtually (within the US).
Take a look at our video highlighting our Autism Ambassador training! We love to share messages about autism awareness and autism acceptance. Educating our friends is the first step of many!
