Autism Awareness, P255Q at PS128

Autism Awareness & Acceptance Outreach Project @ P255q @ PS128

April is Autism Awareness Month. Alison Brennan and the staff at P255q @ PS128 are conducting outreach to the General Education students that we share our school building with. Alison presented a brief introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as a review of the supports we as a school use with our students. At this point, the 6th, 7th & 8th grade students were encouraged to ask any questions they may have about individuals on the Autism Spectrum, as well as share their own experiences. The resulting conversations were interesting, emotional, at times funny, and above all, enlightening. One student said that she did not want to leave to go back to class! The results were also quite astounding, as some of the General Education students immediately went out of their way to help out some of our students! This is what Autism Awareness – and Acceptance is all about!
