Autism Spectrum Disorder Quick Clicks

Welcome to ASD Quick Clicks. This website has been created to help parents, teachers, paraprofessionals, friends, and family members access information on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) quickly and easily. Quick Clicks contains resources to help a student with ASD be included in the general education classrooms. It includes ways special and general education teachers can make accommodations and modification to the general education curriculum accurately and then scaffold those accommodations and modifications as the student becomes more and more independent. Several links provide parents, teachers, and other supportive adults ways they can help to manage challenging behaviors both in school and at home. There are also resources for siblings of a student with ASD and ways to support the entire family.

 

Help! I need to support my student with autism in general education, but how?

I have included several links to help general education teachers, special education teachers, and paraprofessionals support students with ASD in their classrooms. We all know that our students with ASD benefit from being included in the general education classroom. However, we don’t all know how to do this successfully. Most of the quick links include ways to integrate a student with ASD into the general education curriculum. Some links include ways to set up the general education classroom to ensure a student with ASD can be successful. There are also ideas included to manage your classroom so the student with ASD can be successful in the general education environment. There is one link that included ideas to help everyone work together as a collaborative team to ensure the students potential is met.

Dealing with Challenging Behaviors


How can I support my son or daughter through their journey?

Parent/Guardian support is critical for a student with autism. Your support and knowledge is valuable to guide your son or daughter’s educational plan. You are the expert on your child and can provide education teams with vital information that is needed to determine his or her individualized education plan. ​I have included links to help families understand the diagnosis of ASD and what the next steps might be. There are also several community resources to help a student with ASD navigate their community as well as their school environment, and links to supports and services that communities offer so families are aware of the resources that are available to them. Finally, there is once again a focus on the importance of the family being a critical part of the planning team and how you can be an active member of that planning team.

Family and Community Resources


Supports and Resources for Siblings

This section has been created for siblings of children with ASD. Often we focus on the child with autism, and forget the impact ASD has on the entire family. How do siblings deal with the ASD diagnosis? What can we do to support siblings? How do I explain autism to my friends? I have included several links to resources and articles that will help families support siblings of children with ASD. These resources will help you deal with the diagnosis of ASD as an entire family. I also included a few resources that families can share with other families, so friends know how to deal with ASD or how to answer questions from other peers.
