Elementary Educators Toolkit

Videos, classroom discussions, teacher resources and supplemental activities to engage your student body on World Autism Awareness Day.

Autism Ontario is committed to raising awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder so all Ontarians can make their communities a better and more inclusive place for people on the spectrum and their families. Toolkits aren’t necessarily limited by school or by age and we encourage you to check out the other toolkit pages. Join us in making your school and community more inclusive place for students with autism and download your toolkit today!
