Webinar: Building Connection and Community in Middle and High School Settings

May 2 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Presented by Kara Hume, PhD and Victoria Waters, MEd

School connectedness is linked to positive and meaningful outcomes for middle and high school students. Many autistic youth report feeling disconnected from their school communities, often due to a lack of understanding of autism from staff and peers, few opportunities to build relationships in the classroom and beyond, and limited engagement in extracurricular activities. In this webinar we will share both personal perspectives on navigating these settings, as well as evidence-based practices (EBPs) that can be used to enhance connections and community building, and support priority outcomes for students. Easily accessible online resources will be shared, as well as personal, classroom, and school-based examples.
