Part of the uniqueness of our curriculum, AUTISM IS: The Interactive
Classroom Experience, is that it’s based on 4 films created for the
classroom that are included in the curriculum package.
This curriculum has incorporated the common core standards. It is designed
to sensitize students to kids with Autism. Ultimately, the students are
encouraged to explore their thoughts and feelings about, and describe
current interactions with, classmates on the Autism Spectrum. After exposure
to the curriculum, the students are asked to explore the possible
differences in their thoughts and feelings about people on the Spectrum. The
changes in their perceptions and behavior towards their classmates
positively impact the school environment.
**Teacher Guidebooks include 4 Autism movies designed for the classroom.

he has perfect pitch. Today, his talent and determination open doors for him
to go to college and to play with symphony orchestras, theater productions,
jazz ensembles and his church choir.
