Joliet Public Schools | District 86


Autism Consultant

The District 86 autism consultant collaborates regularly with general and special education staff to develop programs and strategies that promote optimal academic, social, and behavior learning for students on the autism spectrum, or who have autism-like characteristics. The autism consultant:

  • Assists teachers in planning and implementing modifications of the instructional program and/or learning environment to allow successful experiences for the child within the least restrictive environment.
  • Promotes positive interventions for students on the autism spectrum.
  • Provides ongoing training for building staff and parents.
  • Maintains a library of materials and resources that are available to building staff and parents.
  • Participates in the special education evaluation or reevaluation process whenever a student is suspected of being on the autism spectrum.
