Product Description
This PowerPoint briefly introduces students to Autism Spectrum Disorder.

It teaches kids the basics about autism, through facts and a story which is based on true life. The PowerPoint covers...

- What autism is.
- Why people have autism.
- How autism impacts people, with specific examples related to the classroom.
- How students can help a friend with autism.

Throughout the PowerPoint there are a number of links to websites and videos which are there to assist in strengthening the students understanding.


I originally created this PowerPoint for my students earlier this year, when a child with autism joined out class. While the children had heard of autism, they didn't know some of the basic information (e.g. It is not a disease) and struggled with how to interact with their new classmate. By building their understanding we have seen a huge amount of growth in the social skills of our autistic student and in the compassion, understanding and thoughtfulness of the rest of the class.
