In this presentation, Dr. Knight will articulate the rationale for including students with a range of learning needs, including students with ASD, in STEM content and contexts. She will focus on cutting edge research in this area to support this rationale. In addition, she will discuss methods she has used internationally to train professionals to promote content-based learning for all students in the classroom.
