I had a wonderful time today speaking at the Asperger’s Association of New England (AANE) conference in Marlboro. The subject of my presentation was Special Education Law and Asperger’s. I covered the basics of IEP’s and 504’s, and then discussed how those apply to students with Asperger’s syndrome. We also talked about the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and how they can be applied to students with disabilities, particularly those with Asperger’s Syndrome and others who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), to build an argument for appropriate services from the school system. The audience was quite large, very engaging, and asked excellent questions. I will try to provide more details about the content in upcoming blogs.
