Professional educators face unique challenges and opportunities when working with students with Aspergerís syndrome. With many of these students being taught in inclusive classrooms, understanding how the Aspergerís brain works is an essential skill for teachers, administrators, counselors and other school staff.
1 in 68 children now have autism spectrum disorders (ASD), according to the Centers for Disease Control, and the number is far more prevalent in males (1 in 42). A subset of those on ďthe spectrumĒ (about 1 in 250 of the general population) is considered to have Aspergerís syndrome or high-functioning autism. And up to 50 percent of these students may be undiagnosed.
Autism can have a varied impact on each child. To the untrained observer, a child with Aspergerís Syndrome may seem like a neurotypical student with behavior issues. In this 90-minute webinar, Autism Counselor-Educator Craig McCullough will help educators understand how students with Aspergerís view the world versus other students on the Autism spectrum, or compared to students who are neurotypical. Children and youth with Aspergerís typically have very high intelligence and good verbal skills, but are challenged when it comes to social behavioral cues and non-verbal communication. Mr. McCullough, who also parents a child with Aspergerís, will reveal how the Aspergerís brain functions, and draw upon that knowledge to provide strategies to help these students learn and grow in this often complex social world.

Craig McCullough has been a counselor educator for the past 20 years working with children and families in various settings.† These have included schools, residential day treatment facilities, inpatient hospital programs, community-based models and a traditional psychotherapy practice.† He has specialized using various trauma-focused approaches.† With the rise in the diagnosis of autism, Craig became more exposed to clients who were on the spectrum. †He soon discovered the conventional wisdom surrounding autism to be not entirely adequate in appropriately treating the social and emotional struggles of this population.† His family has also been given the challenge and privilege of raising a daughter diagnosed with Asperger’s Ė which has provided him additional insights.
