4. D. Bode – Report on Teaching Students with Autism Conference

   Experts from all over the world were guest speakers.
   ADSB was allowed to send 10 people (at the Ministry’s expense)
   Very obvious that Autism Spectrum Disorder is a new frontier.
   One of ten boards in Ontario working on standards research.
   Met with other nine boards with Lucille Norman and a half dozen of researchers.
   Need to explore: how close are we to standards? What will it take? Our board is involved in the planning
    stage.
   Clare Walker one of the ten who attended.

    C. Walker

   Between 700 and 800 attended the Conference.
   The speakers had very impressive credentials; they seemed to be connected to children and not only to
    theory.
   Keynote Speaker, Dr. Rita Jordan from England, seemed to be very “in touch” with children’s needs.
   Statistic – 1 of 160 children has some form of Autism.

    L. Norman

   Attended International Symposium last year, which was very research, based and not like this Conference.
   Research needs to be more data driven as we need to know what IS and what IS NOT working.
   There is a particular strength evident in the disability as well as challenges.
   Received a CD of all the presentations.

    M. Horton

   Got some “best practices” and resources – from JK to Secondary.
   Evident that what works with one child, may not work with another.

    M. Richards

   Met with parents who were relieved to see the high interest in Autism.
   Parents pleaded with staff in attendance to bring all the information back to their school board staff.
   Child is 90% visual and 10% verbal; ask teacher to look at teaching style and perhaps change that style.

    J. Phillips

   Overall the Conference was very worthwhile.
   DSMIV – each child is different.
