The More You Know: Autism
Previously, I wrote a blog entry called "The More You Know: Down Syndrome". That blog was dedicated to debunking myths and assumptions about down syndrome. I have just written a blog post called "The More You Know: Autism on VoicEd.ca"
Here is a small excerpt:
"The first blog I wrote as part of this segment was all about Down Syndrome on my personal website, www.mskaraline.weebly.com I also wrote a piece called “Teacher Guide to Terminology Etiquette” that is related to these blog posts, here on VoicEd. I will now be focusing on Autism. The word autism raises many different ideas and assumptions, however autism spectrum disorder is very broad. As a teacher, you will probably have students in your classroom with ASD, and it is important to know how we can integrate their learning styles, and needs. ‘The More You Know’ posts are dedicated to debunking myths and assumptions."
Let’s end the stigma about autism. How can we do this? By being aware about the facts and truth behind ASD, and continuing to share this information with others.
