Autism Awareness Month

Autism Awareness Month

Please join with the Thomasville City Schools Exceptional Children's Department in recognizing April as Autism Awareness Month.  We need your help in spreading the word both in the district and the community!!  Throughout the month of April, updates will be provided to staff regarding Autism Awareness, including characteristics of students with autism spectrum disorders, statistics regarding the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders, and researched-based teaching techniques for meeting the needs of these students.   Additional information will be provided about activities occurring within the United States and our local community that are implemented yearly to support autism awareness.  
 
Thanks to our supportive administrators, regular education teachers, parents, and community partners for your ongoing efforts to meet the needs of ALL students in the district but particularly those that have unique and diverse learning needs.  I do believe we learn as much or more from these students than they actually learn from us!
