Behavioral Strategies to Support Students with ASD During Remote Learning
February 23, 2021 –
The impact of COVID-19 on students and school systems has been significant. During this unprecedented time in education, students with disabilities may be disproportionately affected by the widespread disruptions to their schooling. The transition from in-person learning to remote and hybrid learning can be especially difficult for children with ASD who seek consistency and structure, and who may struggle with the departure from familiar educational routines. This presentation will outline common challenges experienced by children with ASD during remote learning, particularly related to engagement in educational sessions and the occurrence of low-intensity maladaptive behaviors. Participants will increase their knowledge of evidence-based strategies to prevent and decrease challenging behaviors and learn tips for establishing and supporting effective remote learning environments. The importance of effective collaboration between educators and families during remote and hybrid learning will be highlighted throughout the presentation.
- Participants will identify common challenges that may impact the educational progress of students with ASD who are participating in remote or hybrid learning.
- Participants will increase their knowledge of evidence-based practices that support the behavioral functioning of students with ASD during remote or hybrid learning experiences.
- Participants will understand the role of educator and caregiver collaboration in supporting students with ASD during remote/hybrid learning.
