Actually Autistic Educator

Actually Autistic Educator is a podcast hosted by advisory team member Jeanne Clifton on topics related to accessibility access and issues affecting the autistic, ASD and Asperger’s community. While there has been significant recent improvements in education and access to support for autistic individuals, there remains a long history where they have faced misunderstanding, discrimination, bullying and teasing during secondary, K-12, college and university and in the workplace. AAE sets out to shed light on these topics through an audio podcast as well as a summary document for each episode.

The Navigator

The Navigator is InterACTT’s expert system that rises above traditional pen and paper assessments and intervention plans. It takes the guess work out of these processes, as it guides counselors, human resource professionals, and CARE and threat team members to work through a series of questions which will be used to develop an intervention plan and have clear documentation to support these interventions. Based on best-practices and in-depth research, your answers will be assembled and analyzed by the system to create a risk level and risk-based suggestions for interventions. Because of the depth and breadth of the report, the Navigator requires that you answer questions related to each of the core concepts. As you submit each section, the concept icon will change to green. When all concepts are completed and green, you will be able to submit for the report.

 

Privacy will never be an issue – no information is saved within the system. Instead, the summary dashboard and guidance recommendations are created to provide you with a clear intervention plan and documentation to justify the next steps for the individual.

InterACTTives

These interactive case studies use audio/visual and video components to build a case for you to score on the Navigator. Our first case involves Matilda, a first-year college student studying at a residential, four-year university. She came from Lancaster, U.K. on a scholarship for soccer (football). It is now late October. A teammate shares a concern with you and the CARE team. These videos are a sampling of what you'll find to help you gather information on the case.
