This course will focus on the psychological theories of autism and how a student’s weakness in any of them may impact their ability to access the curriculum or excel in any environment. Through the presentation of case studies, three psychological theories will be discussed and shown to directly impact students with autism and their ability to access academic content and a less restrictive environment. Participants will also determine how evidence-based practices (EBPs) can be used to help students progress toward and meet specific standards and classroom expectations. Participants will learn the three psychological theories that affect students with an autism spectrum disorder (Theory of Mind, Central Coherence, Executive Function) and how they relate to autism. Participants will also learn how weaknesses in each of the above-mentioned areas inhibits progress toward academics and participation in the least restrictive environment. Participants will discuss EBPs and how they can be used to help support the student based on current needs and determine ways to increase student progress and success in the least restrictive environment.
