There are a growing number of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) being included in school and community-based arts programming. This workshop provides successful instructional strategies for including students with ASD in the areas of communication, cognition, sensory integration, socialization, emotional management, and behavior. The information that is provided can easily be generalized into all learning environments.
