Ask Me About Asperger's Syndrome

by Michael Thompson Productions
Children with Asperger’s Syndrome can play a strong role in classrooms if professionals are attuned to their particular needs. In this video you’ll learn how to do this by hearing from autism specialists, teachers, parents—and those with Asperger’s themselves.

    Ask Me About Asperger's Syndrome
    Asperger’s Syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder characterized by impairments in several areas. Those with this syndrome are considered to have high functioning ASD, or Autism Spectrum Disorder.

    This video will be of interest to social workers and all mental health professionals who work with children, as kids with Asperger’s are often in the same classroom as children without any special needs. Understanding the unique strengths and challenges of these children will be important to ensure a rich educational experience for all students.

    In this video teachers and autism specialists will take you through each of the domains that can be affected in children with Asperger’s Syndome:
    • Language development
    • Social interaction
    • Sensory integration
    • Motor functioning
    • Cognitive processing

    They’ll discuss how children with Asperger’s struggle in these areas and provide concrete tips for supporting them throughout their school day. This will include some accommodation of the classroom environment as well as calling upon other students to support their diverse classmates. Special attention is placed on learning the distinct and unique triggers and struggles for each child. The video also offers particular sections called, “The Parent’s Perspective,” which remind the viewer of the child’s individuality.

    Anyone who works with children with Asperger’s Syndrome will obtain a greater understanding of this disorder from Ask Me About Asperger’s, as well as learn actionable ways to make the classroom a better place for all children to learn.
