8:00 am - 4:30 pm
Every child with Autism has their own unique needs however their profile includes similar deficit areas. We will look at all of the deficit areas and share evidence-based practices and strategies to address: communication, social-emotional, rigid thinking, sensory processing, academic success, relationship building, on-task behavior, independence, and more. Not only will we share real-life stories of implementation, but will also share great free websites or apps in order to locate some of these supports. You are encouraged to bring your computer or iPAD to learn and explore these resources hands-on. Whether you are a teacher, a speech therapist, an occupational therapist, social worker, or another provider you will walk away with many practical strategies that you can start implementing tomorrow!
As a result of this workshop participants will be able to:
• Describe a minimum of 3 strategies to support each of the following: social-emotional, rigid thinking, and on-task behaviors.
• Describe a minimum of 5 strategies to support sensory processing with a student with autism.
• Locate a minimum of 3 websites/apps to support the following: the creation of visuals, communication, and academic success.
• List a minimum of 5 evidence-based practices to be used when working with students with autism.
