Strategies to support children with autistic fixations
Clancy Giesbrecht is an English teacher with a special education certification. She teaches students with various special needs, including autism. She helps students by providing a consistent routine, teaching social skills explicitly, and keeping in mind how much sensory input students receive at one time. She provides individualized accommodations and scaffolds for each student to promote maximum growth based on strengths and weaknesses. She graduated in 2017 from Pepperdine University in Los Angeles before moving to Lubbock, TX. When she’s not grading papers or writing, she enjoys traveling with her husband, walking her dogs, reading fantasy novels, and playing board games.
