Event Description

The focus of this training is on understanding how individuals with autism store, retrieve and change information. In other words, the participants will learn how individuals on the autism think. A visual system will be presented which demonstrates how to assist individuals with ASD to change their thinking patterns and avoid behavior meltdowns. This approach can also be applied to teaching reading comprehension, writing skills and dealing with ever changing schedules which can be difficult for so many of our folks with autism. Teaching strategies that directly complement this thinking style along with “neurologically friendly supports” will be presented, so together teachers, parents, and individuals with autism can all “win”. Come prepared to learn, to participate and maybe even to change your own thinking. 6/19/2018 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 6/20/2018 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
