Feedback for educators
Hey, this is my first blog ever---wow. OK, so I had the wonderful experience of being asked by a school administrator for any feedback I might have as a parent of a kid with ASD about the general school environment. How sensitive it is to kids who might have sensory issues? How the transitions work? And anything about the overall environment that could be improved.
Of course, I told him I would love to give some input and will schedule a time to spend most of a day in the school to learn how things flow now. But this made me think...has anyone been involved with making a "workbook" so to speak or guidebook for schools that include considerations about the environment and staff that would help kids on the spectrum? It seems to me someone has mentioned this before (?). I know some of you parents have even done an Autism 101 workshop for school staff.
Anyway, I would love to revive this and make it a group project. Something we could bind and have available to schools.
