| † A BRIEF HISTORY OF BUILDING BRIDGES
Educators in the 21st century must prepare all students to participate and contribute to society as fully as possible. Accomplishing this requires extending opportunities for Direct Instruction about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) to school staff and to students.
The team developed explicit instruction in social skills for students with ASD to achieve social competence and to develop successful interactions and relationships with their peers. These lessons can be implemented by various school personnel at all school levels.
Building Bridges focuses on ASD; however, the materials can be used for other disabilities. Feel free to personalize this guide to meet the needs of your individual school population.
