Classroom Management Strategies and other Teacher Worthy Ideas

Autism, Behavior, and the Impact of Kindness

Do you know someone who is on the #Autism Spectrum? I have known about a dozen over the years. Most of these wonderful people are just fine, but certainly do need kindness and understanding as they try to figure out social cues, even classroom lighting. For instance, when they’re in a crowd of people, they need to hold someone’s hand to feel safer.

As noted by #Judy Endow in her post that I’ve shared below, her words couldn’t express how she was feeling in certain situations. The kindness and understanding of her friends have helped her in many situations. She’s in her 60’s now but remembers many situations where she could have been helped more positively when she was younger.

Here’s the link to her site. If you’re a #teacher or friend of someone who is part of the #Autism Spectrum, you need to read this.
