STEAMing Ahead: Parent Training for Inclusive STEAM Education of Children with Autism

STEAM fields are growing rapidly and are expected to be some of the most in-demand fields in the coming years. In fact, projected growth for STEAM related jobs between 2014 and 2024 is 28.2%, compared to 6.5% for all occupations (Fayer et al., 2017). So, a strong foundation in STEAM subjects can set children up for success in their future careers.

According to a recent report (McClure et al., 2017), “There’s growing evidence that very young children from all backgrounds — even children from birth to age 8 — learn important science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) skills and habits of mind from everyday play and early learning activities.” Furthermore, “brain and skills-building experiences early in life are critical for child development, and high-quality early STEAM experiences can support children’s growth across areas as diverse as executive function and literacy development,” which can be challenging for students who have autism (McClure et al., 2017)
