Accreditation Check:
Parents of children newly diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their professional intervention teams often ask: 1) Can my child with ASD be successful in school? 2) How do we best prepare my child to be successful at school? 3) What is my game plan? By incorporating our knowledge of core challenges, learning style differences and empirical research, we believe that the Learning Style Profile for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Rydell, 2012) can serve as a foundation for program development as we prepare our children with autism spectrum disorders to be ready for school and avoid many of the stumbling blocks for learning once they are in school.
