Kids Speak at Autism Awareness Assembly

This is an interesting idea, especially in light of the article I posted previously.

"[Amy] Shulman [special education teacher] liked the fact that her small group of autistic students, along with another class of students with mild intellectual disabilities, helped educate the "mainstream" students.
"We see the difference — it's making (other students) stop and realize they are a part of the school community." "

An excellent policy that our school [variation on a theme] has already adopted. I think that most schools would benefit similarly. Cheers
