Meaningful inclusion of students on the autism spectrum doesn't happen without intentionality. You know your school's needs better than we do. Here are some questions to consider when determining what Good Friend service(s) might be best.
- What grade levels are included for student services?
- How many students/sections in each grade level?
- When was the last time your staff had autism-specific training?
- Does your school staff consistently use inclusive practices?
- Is disability harassment a problem at your school?
Answering these questions will help us co-develop a targeted service plan. Refer to this target graphic to better understand the personalization of content, where the center is most specific and the outside is most general.
* All scheduled services include a kit of supplemental information.
Discussion guides school staff (classroom teachers, guidance counselors, social workers, psychologists, etc.) can use in conjunction with our award-winning elementary and middle school films
so you can deliver our autism awareness-acceptance-empathy message yourself!
We at Good Friend are taking precautions in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and we know that schools and other community organizations are, as well. We also know how important social-emotional learning is. While our preference is to provide these programs in person, we recognize that doing so may not be safe. We also know that, even if you plan to have us visit, a positive test result for COVID-19 could change your availability. Know that we are flexible and prepared. Get in touch with us for more information on how we can make your commUNITY a more inclusive and neurodiverse atmosphere.
