The shift to online learning in the past year has presented significant challenges for children and families, especially for autistic children who often struggle with changes in routine and the engagement required for remote instruction.
Brooke Ingersoll, director of MSU Autism lab
Brooke Ingersoll, a professor of psychology at Michigan State University and director of the MSU Autism Lab, has worked closely with providers throughout the pandemic to ensure proper intervention methods were delivered to children with minimal interruption.
Recognizing these challenges and the stress on families, Ingersoll notes that the transition to remote learning and telehealth has also opened the door for some positive changes in service delivery for autism — by increasing access to services. She is hopeful that these positive changes will continue into the future, even after the threat of COVID-19 passes.
