Small Wonders Big Gains: The Preschool Autism Classroom
A Preschool Autism Class (PAC)
In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), Preschool Autism Class (PAC) services are designed to address the specific needs of preschool-age children who have been identified as having Autism Spectrum Disorder or present characteristics on the autism spectrum, and who cannot benefit from the early childhood class-based program.
This video highlights the principles of instruction and how nuggets of learning are conveyed in a preschool autism classroom. An early investment in an autistic child’s education may change the entire trajectory of how that child will continue to learn and grow.
