Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 (FFC8) recognizes the unique and challenging needs of children with Autism. Although there are many common features of children with Autism, there is great variability in the disorder. FFC8 is committed to providing educational programs that have a specific focus around the different learning techniques and environments that will benefit individual children. Although FFC8 houses intense educational programming for children with Autism, children with Autism are also serviced by Affective Needs Teachers, Significant Support Needs Teachers, Moderate Needs Teachers, and Classroom Teachers. Meeting the needs of children with Autism requires the district to consider a multitude of educational opportunities.
The Autism Team focuses on providing recommendations for students in their learning environment that will build on students’ strengths while minimizing factors that most interfere with learning.
