Training Overview Description

Each year, AARC invites a nationally recognized speaker to share their message in at least two rural Alaskan locations. In 2019, AARC is excited to welcome Dr. Brenda Smith Myles to Alaska!

Brenda Smith Myles truly stands out as a powerful autism educator. She has a talent for taking complex information and breaking it down in a way that is easily understandable to all. She is personable and able to connect with her audiences on a meaningful level. This ability leaves her session attendees with new autism-related information, and ideas for how to apply this knowledge in an impactful way in their homes, classrooms, and communities.​

Brenda Smith Myles is a superstar in the world of autism education. Brenda has made over 1000 presentations all over the world and written more than 250 articles and books on ASD. In the latest survey conducted by the University of Texas, she was acknowledged as the second most productive applied researcher in ASD in the world! She has been the recipient of the Autism Society of America’s Outstanding Professional Award, the Princeton Fellowship Award, The Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome (GRASP) Divine Neurotypical Award, American Academy of Pediatrics Autism Champion, and two-time recipient of the Council for Exceptional Children, Division on Developmental Disabilities Burton Blatt Humanitarian Award.

Event-specific Details

"The Hidden Curriculum"

Download presentation slides

The hidden curriculum refers to the set of rules or guidelines that are often not directly taught but are assumed to be known (Garrett, 1984; Hemmings, 2000; Jackson, 1968; Kanpol, 1989). This curriculum contains items that impact social interactions, school performance, and sometimes health and well-being. The hidden curriculum also includes unspoken rules, slang, metaphors, body language etc. While this information may be intuitive for neurotypical individuals, but it is not those with autism or other special needs. This session includes practical tips for teaching these hidden social needs to children and to adults and stresses the importance of making these a part of everyday life.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

Define the hidden curriculum

Explain the hidden curriculum’s applicability to school, community, and home

Identify hidden curriculum areas and items across preschool, middle school, high school, and adulthood
