Facilitating Nature-Based Learning With Autistic Students

Nature-based learning has many benefits for children, including building confidence, improving attention, supporting the development of social-emotional skills, and developing gross motor skills.

However, most research to date has focused on the experiences of neurotypical students with nature-based learning. An article in the latest issue of Childhood Education International’s Childhood Education: Innovation magazine offers a broader look by providing recommendations on how to implement high-quality nature-base learning for autistic children.

The article brings together knowledge from educators who regularly engage in nature-based learning but may not have much knowledge of autism, with the expertise of educators who regularly teach with autistic students but may not be well-versed in creating nature-based learning opportunities.
