Virtual Instruction for Students with Autism (Part I)

Speaking: Dr. Amiris DiPuglia

This is part one of three. See 2.d and 3.d for the remaining sessions. As a result of the abrupt and unexpected mandated school closures that went beyond the initial timeline predicted, the continued instruction of students became a priority. With the only option during stay-at-home mandates being virtual instruction, how would teachers of students with autism make this work when it is challenging enough to provide effective interventions in the classroom with all materials, supports, and personnel necessary? With the uncertainty of closures being a possibility in the future, this session will review important considerations and guidelines for effectively planning, preparing, providing and monitoring virtual instruction for students with autism. Both asynchronous (pre-recorded) and synchronous (live) sessions will be addressed.
