Supporting Students with Disabilities in the Classroom: The Case for Social-Emotional Learning

This presentation will provide an overview of early social-emotional development and how this development diverges in children with autism. Social-emotional learning will be described as an ideal context for addressing the needs of students with developmental vulnerabilities in the classroom and for supporting classroom active engagement. Research using the Classroom SCERTS Intervention Model will be described along with a description of SEE-KS, a community viable model of professional development aiming to support educators in meeting the learning needs of all students. Classroom supports at varying levels of language development will be shared along with classroom video vignettes.
