Peer Awareness Presentations
ASNL staff provides fun and meaningful classroom or community group presentations about what it means for someone to have ASD and how that diagnosis can impact them as a student and as a friend. Designed according to grade level, these engaging presentations use age-appropriate stories, videos, games, and discussions to educate students and create understanding and empathy among peers.
