Ongoing, high-quality professional development for educators is not a luxury-- it's a necessity. The PDXpert line of complete professional development workshop modules offers schools everything they need to host high-quality, professional development workshops in house, with minimal preparation and at a fraction of the cost of hiring third-party workshop facilitators.

Understanding Autism and Asperger's Syndrome is a 3-hour long workshop (may also be presented as multiple shorter sessions) covering the following topics:

  • Defining Autism: Definition & Diagnosis
  • Characteristics of Students with Autism: Social Interactions and Skill Development; Communication; Behavioral Issues
  • Defining Asperger’s Syndrome: Definition; Diagnostic Criteria
  • Characteristics of Students with Asperger’s Syndrome: Social Interaction Impairments; Speech and Communication; Cognitive and Academic Abilities; Sensory Characteristics; Physical and Motor Anomalies
  • Best Practices for Supporting Students with Asperger’s Syndrome: The Eight Areas of Functioning; Effective Instructional Strategies 

 This easy-to-use, turn-key professional development solution includes the following components:

  • Pre-session and planning materials
  • Workshop agenda
  • Presentation outline
  • PowerPoint presentation with presenter's notes
  • Attendee handouts
  • Follow-up activities and implementation guides 
  • Evaluation forms
  • Certificates of completion

The above components are provided in a presenter's binder with printouts of all the workshop materials, as well as on CD-ROM and USB flash drive (downloadable files).  All PDXpert workshops are aligned with Learning Forward (NSDC) Standards for Professional Learning. 

PDXpert workshops are adaptable and can be presented year after year, making them an excellent value. As an added bonus, you will receive one free copy of the laminated reference guide, Teaching Students with Autism & Asperger's Syndrome in the Inclusive Classroom by Paula Kluth with your purchase-- a $12.95 value!
