Meet Your Students With Austism
You may have already taught students with high-functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome, but have you taken the time to get to know them? Today we'll discover how their brains are wired differently, the ways they behave, and smart strategies to make the most of the opportunity to teach these kids.

Understand the Common Characteristics of HFA/AS
Now that we've met our students, in this lesson we'll develop an understanding of the characteristics they often display in our classrooms. From trouble handling change to difficulty with social interaction, language processing, and distractions, we'll discover how these characteristics shape students' worldview and ability to perform in academic settings. 

Discover How Your Students Think
Did you know that most students with high-functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome are visual thinkers? Today we'll spend some time determining how these students process information so we can tailor our lesson plans to their preferred learning and thinking styles. 

Nurture Students' Social Skills
In this lesson, you'll discover how students with high-functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome struggle socially. We'll talk about the extent of the problem, some of the causes, and its very real impact. Then we'll discuss some nonverbal and verbal exercises we can do in class to lessen these students' social anxiety. 

Encourage Language Reciprocity
Today we'll explore how students with high-functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome converse and why it's so incredibly hard for them to keep conversations going. Then we'll talk about a graphic organizer that is very helpful when students need to translate between their thoughts and ours. Finally, we'll cover how to write social stories that help kids understand what's expected of them.

Work With Sensory Sensitivities
In this lesson, we're going to examine why students with high-functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome have such delicate sensory sensitivities. Then we'll discuss two strategies for helping them reclaim control over daily experiences that once seemed quite intimidating. Both the strategies we'll discuss are visual ones, and they're wonderfully easy and effective. 

Nurture Special Interests
Students with high-functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome are often "little professors" who have highly specialized interests and fixations. How do we direct these gifts for math or language or science into appropriate academic channels? With visual strategies that help students link their interests to the broader world. You'll learn the strategies today!

Encourage Homework Completion
This may just be your favorite lesson in the course! Every teacher I know is looking for new and exciting strategies to get students to do their homework. Today you'll learn how to engage students with high-functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome in their studies and link their interests with meaningful learning. 

Counter Runaway Emotions and Meltdowns
What if you had an emotional meltdown every single day? Would you be excited to get out of bed and do it all over again? Probably not. Many students with high-functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome are prone to meltdowns and tantrums that derail their focus and take up precious classroom time. In this lesson, you'll learn how to turn these charged encounters into more positive learning experiences. 

Redirect Violent Fixations
No one likes to be teased! Sadly, many students with high-functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome are bullied or made fun of on a daily basis. Because this makes them so fearful and frustrated, they often fixate on objects of power or violence—fixations that can have very serious consequences in today's world. Today we'll delve into how to channel these frustrations into more appropriate feelings. 

Foster Attentiveness
Imagine what it would be like if your mind raced all the time, darting from thought to thought at warp speed. It would be pretty hard to pay attention to anything, wouldn't it? In this lesson, we'll look at ways to help students focus on our lessons and learn a little something in the process. Here's a hint: Visuals help! 

Plan for the Future
In our final lesson, we'll talk about smart ways to prepare students for life beyond our four walls. It's never too early to start thinking about ways to encourage students to reach their highest potential in future classes, jobs, and social roles. After all, isn't that why we chose to be teachers in the first place?

In addition to being a classroom teacher, I am also a grandmother of the most wonderful little boy who has some signs of AS, according to the best experts we can find at highly respected Universities and elsewhere. Lesson 10, as well as other lessons in this course, are right on the mark in picturing AS as it really, really is. My 6 year old grandson shares the AS experience by fixating on drawing and talking about anything that he perceives as robotic over and over and over again because that scares him in a way that no one understands including him. He is very verbal, has an IQ of 150+, but was/is always asking questions like why do other kids WANT to play with me, why can't I write, color, and use a spoon like others in my class. He talks about violent behaviors, not to do them, but as our instructor points out, to somehow lessen his fears of violence. We do not know how he even knows about such things. He is loving, and out going at home. His wonderful kindergarten teacher and school have made a world of difference in his life and by that his family's also. I wanted all of you to know that the lessons presented in this course are about real people and that they also really work. My child will probably never play a team sport, but might discover another solar system with the telescope he intends to build by himself. I just wanted to say thank you. I have learned so much from this class. I can't wait to implement the strategies in my classroom. You made the lessons so easy to understand. As I was reading thru each lesson, I had a several "ah, ah" moments. It has made me look at several of my students differently and think of new ways to help them. If you know of any other classes on Autism, I would love to know about them. Again thank you for a wonderful class. I hope to take another class with you one day. :) Janice

Too many times you hear the information and strategies that will help students with Autism, but you don't really understand why you use them. I like being able to have a sense of what these students are dealing with and all that they have to overcome in a day. The activities and descriptions from this class have allowed me a better understand how students with Autism and Asperger's process information and why it is so important that we use these specific strategies to assist our students. Thank you for a great class!

I have to say this course is turning out to be wonderful for me! It has helped me to put words on the things I am seeing in and about this child who has been diagnosed Autistic. I am using many of the strategies and suggestions to help him feel more at ease, less anxious(a personal agenda on his desk, a quiet area in the room where he can go when he feels the need) and more verbal with his classmates. I am going to begin working on a couple Social Stories with him. I just love the information you are provided.

Next year I will be getting two students with Autism as third graders who have meltdowns that come quickly and at times without warning. One bites himself and others, and throws things and screams very loudly during these tantrums. He is non-verbal and very low functioning. The second also has sudden outbursts of uncontrollable screams and tantrums when frustrated with work, and at times becomes frustrated for no apparent reason or warning.(Pre K level). This is why I signed up for this class. I truly appreciate the toolbox of strategies and ideas shared in these lessons and supplementary materials, as-well-as the experiences shared by others in the discussion areas. I realize that there is no magical fix-all button, but I hope I will be able to help these students redirect their emotional energy. I greatly appreciate these lessons. They address exactly what I feel I need to know more about. I know to be looking for anecedents, but I truly needed tools to add to my toolbox for them and me! Thanks again for all your help!

I have taken a lot of online classes. I have also gathered a lot of information on Asperger's to help my son and my students. However, I have never had an online class that was so organized, informative, and geared toward us learning about these special students. We were lucky to have such an amazing online course and professor. The children that will be helped by it are lucky to have you in their little corner of the world. Many thanks!

Thank you Ellen for your wonderful guidance throughout this course. Your passion shines through. Your interactions in the discussion areas were insightful and helpful. I am so glad I took this course. I will be taking some great new ideas back to the classroom when I return to work next week, which will enable me to be a more effective teacher. I completed the final exam and scored 100 %, so your teaching methods were very successful. I took this as a two semester credit hour course. I feel very prepared to successfully write on the topics included in the final assignment. I have taken some very good online courses before, but they did not provide the interaction with an instructor as this one did. I really appreciated that feedback so I knew if I was on the right track. Your expertise was so helpful in each of the discussion areas. I liked the structure of the class.

This is the first time I've taken a class that is entirely online. I'm really enjoying the format and content - much more than I expected! I love the way we are not only learning about learning styles - the content of this class is delivered in a way that covers each learning style. There are lots of visuals, movie clips, graphs, etc.with each lesson. So many method classes I've taken over the years lecture about ways to reach students but the information was always presented in lecture form only. I find myself retaining much more information and thinking beyond what I am reading, thanks to the visuals that are placed in the text.

I thought your course was really good - both informative and practical. I'm recommending it to my district special ed director as a course which would be really useful to any teacher - regular or special education - who wants to develop a good understanding of AS, and strategies to work with students who have AS…I appreciate how responsive to and thoughtful about the questions from the other students you were, and how thoughtful many of the questions and comments by the other students were. I'm glad I took your course.

I thoroughly enjoyed this online experience and hope to take another class under Dr. Ellen Arnold in the future. I found her approach to be personal, professional, effective, and pertinent. I am much better prepared to work with HFA students and very grateful for the concrete example and tried and true strategies provided by Dr. Arnold. She is an excellent instructor!

This was a perfect course for me. Each lesson was simple and easy to understand - I was able to focus on the goals of each lesson and didn't get bogged down with too much information at once. I don't have a lot of experience teaching students with Asperberger's and this was just right for my level of need. The writing was clear and easy to understand. The assignments and discussions helped so much in cementing my understanding. And the best part of all was that my student directly benefited from several of the suggested techniques. Our year is going so well, and I feel he is getting what he needs because of this course. Thank you so much. I have recommended this course to several people and truly hope they will take it.

I'm recommending it to my district special ed director as a course which would be really useful to any teacher - regular or special education - who wants to develop a good understanding of AS, and strategies to work with students who have AS…I appreciate how responsive to and thoughtful about the questions from the other students you were, and how thoughtful many of the questions and comments by the other students were. I'm glad I took your course.

I thoroughly enjoyed this online experience and hope to take another class under Dr. Ellen Arnold in the future. I found her approach to be personal, professional, effective, and pertinent. I am much better prepared to work with HFA students and very grateful for the concrete example and tried and true strategies provided by Dr. Arnold. She is an excellent instructor!

This was a perfect course for me. Each lesson was simple and easy to understand - I was able to focus on the goals of each lesson and didn't get bogged down with too much information at once. I don't have a lot of experience teaching students with Asperberger's and this was just right for my level of need. The writing was clear and easy to understand. The assignments and discussions helped so much in cementing my understanding. And the best part of all was that my student directly benefited from several of the suggested techniques. Our year is going so well, and I feel he is getting what he needs because of this course. Thank you so much. I have recommended this course to several people and truly hope they will take it.
