Growing Up Together Booklets
Classmates of a student with an ASD need information about autism . This information should be provided in a respectful manner and without stigmatizing the student on the autism spectrum. Below are two booklets to help teachers and parents provide peer awareness training. The booklets are provided below in printer-friendly format or you may purchase in large quantities from the E-Store at Indiana Institute on Disability and Community.
The Growing Up Together information was developed by the Autism Society of America and Indiana Resource Center for Autism (IRCA). If you have any questions about how to use these materials, please contact Kristie Lofland, Educational Consultant, IRCA. Kristie can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (812) 855-6508.
