About This Course
This course aims to enhance the expertise of STEM teachers in supporting students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We will address the defining characteristics of ASD and enable participants to understand the major symptoms and their impact on daily life. A short quiz has been developed to assess this understanding.
We will look more in depth at the different perspectives on Autism Spectrum Disorders and their potential impact. The course will identify potential challenges that educators may encounter when teaching ASD students. Participants will be challenged to develop strategies and adaptations that can help these students navigate higher education. In addition, participants will be encouraged to provide feedback on the contributions of their fellow students.
This course is a component of the EU-funded project “STEM Continuous Professional Development at European Universities – STEM-CPD @EUni”. Upon successful completion, participants will be awarded a corresponding certificate.
