North Clackamas schools welcome nearly 17,000 students through their front doors each morning, including hundreds of students with special needs stemming from Autism Spectrum Disorder.  How do NCSD staff members ensure students displaying autistic characteristics feel welcome, excited, and inspired in each of our schools?  That’s where this week's guests come in!  Meet NCSD’s Autism/Behavior Specialists Genoa Hillis, Julia Hunter, and Amy Nielsen, who spend their days criss-crossing the district teaming with teachers, problem-solving with paraeducators, and, most importantly, inspiring all students to feel proud of how special they are.
