This Reflective Practice Large Group Meeting was held on Wednesday, September 21, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the HUB Monongahela Room.
Students with autism are attending our campuses in increasing
numbers. What principles of universal design can we implement
to assist all students and include students on the spectrum?
We will explore some of the classroom issues for students in
this population and provide possible strategies and solutions.
