Classroom Shift

Having an Autism Shift in the classroom gives students the opportunity to shift the way they view individuals with autism, seeing them as the intelligent, capable people they truly are.  It is easy to do, takes a small amount of time, and can have a lasting impact on a school's inclusive environment.  Please use the materials provided to lead your own Autism Shift discussion.  When you are done vote on this page and tell us whether your class had an Autism Shift, we'd really love to know! And take a moment to share your classroom shift story on The Autism Shift Facebook page and tell others how you are helping improve inclusion at your school!
