I got a returning guest who wanted to talk about an important topic with our community:
Martin Slyngstad is an autistic self advocate who is an author of a book: Chatterbox- My life with Autism. He works full time as a behavior specialist. He returns on “The World of Autism” to share an important message about adding goals of self regulation and management skills onto students’ IEPs. As a behavior specialist, Martin believes students with disabilities should learn coping and self regulation skills to adapt in the world. Learn more about his message here:
What kind of self regulation and management goals do you have for your students and/or clients? Are they included in their individualized education plans (IEPs) and/or behavior intervention plans (BIPs)? Share your experiences in the comments section!
