Navigating Online Instruction: Q&A with Classroom Teachers

An xMinds Event

The new school year is here, and we want all our students on the autism spectrum to be successful!  With this goal in mind, xMinds is offering parents and students the opportunity to ask educators about issues they're having with distance learning. 

Please keep your questions on the topic of distance learning, and we encourage you to join for one part or both parts -- choose the teachers whose experience is most relevant for you or your child.

Guests Educators: 

Kristin King and Rachel Tate -- for Elementary School (11-11:45am)

Susan Lee and Joseph Mann -- for Middle and High School  (11:45 - 12:30pm)

Date and Time:  Saturday, Sept. 12, 11-12:30

Location:  Online

Cost: Free
