centerpiece of the presentation is Paula’s “Top Ten Strategies List for Inclusive Classrooms”
in which she addresses the need for sensory supports, visuals, active learning, “safe space,"
and materials that capitalize on student strengths. Other topics addressed include defining
(and redefining) autism, listening to the voices of those with autism, creating more responsive
lessons, making the classroom comfortable, and providing opportunities for communication
skill development. The presentation provides teachers with the necessary knowledge and
strategies to understand every student as complex, as capable, and as a learner.
