This presentation will articulate the rationale for including students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) curricula and
contexts. Dr. Knight will focus on her innovative research in this area to support this rationale, especially in the areas of coding and robotics. In addition, she will discuss methods she has used
internationally to train professionals to promote content-based learning for all students in the classroom.

*Light refreshments will be provided. No RSVP Required.
