Children and Teens on the autism spectrum—even those who are very smart and enjoy learning—often find school very challenging. They may find it difficult to deal with the sensory environment (noises, lights, smells), with social demands (working in groups, and unstructured times of day), and with gross and fine motor tasks. It may be hard for them to remain attentive, organized, and calm throughout a long, varied school day.

Educators work incredibly hard each day to try and help all their students learn. Let AANE help you help your students.
