    The class was repetitive in a GOOD way! Reviewed ideas helped me to connect them with situations and commit to memory. I learned so much! I have not taken any special education classes and this gave an excellent overview that I can readily apply to autistic children in my life.

    Wow! By far this was the most informative and beneficial course I've taken. Regardless of which students I may be working, this helps me to have a better understanding of why a student may be doing something or other, and gives me pause to be a bit more aware of particular needs (which is asking for a bit more understanding and a lot more patience on my part.)

    This course was very informative and really opened my eyes to the struggles of autistic students. With an increased knowledge in autism, I know I will be teaching more autistic students as time goes on. This course gave me more confidence and ideas to handle these students.

    I always knew that if started early that children with autism could have the potential to move up on levels of learning. I just didn't know the difference between those levels and this course showed me what they were. It will help me in the future when I have autistic students in my class.

  33. Melissa W. says:

    This course has strengthened my knowledge and understanding and the needs of children with autism and how they think, react and understand differently. I now have information and ideas from this course that I can integrate in my classroom.
