This interview with Tracy Murray, who has 27 years of work in classrooms, documents the radical—and positive--shift in the classroom in the way children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are viewed by society. ASD Nest, a program run by New York City’s Education Department and New York University is discussed; it includes kids with and without ASD in the same classroom and helps them all develop social and emotional skills. ASD Nest is running in 54 elementary, middle, and high schools across New York City.
