The Washington Post had a very interesting story this week on how educators attempt to help students with mild autism, who can keep up academically, but have trouble navigating the social and emotional aspects of school.
The article describes how parents say they are often forced to seek out programs at private schools that teach social skills along with other core classes. Some public schools in the Washington area are offering or developing special programs for children with mild autism.
What are some innovative approaches your districts take to providing students with mild autism the social skills support they will need?
