Understanding Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
This online seminar will provide an overview of Autism Spectrum Disorders and effective treatment practices. A review of diagnostic categories, etiology, and current research will establish the foundation for this course. Key factors that impact individuals within an educational setting will be discussed (e.g. communication, social skills, executive functioning, sensory, and behavioral characteristics) and support strategies and evidence based teaching methodologies will be presented. Participants will be introduced to functional behavior assessments and how they are used to develop positive behavioral support plans.
These series of workshops, offered twice a year, provide parents and caretakers a more academic look at the multi-faceted issues surrounding autism. This is why these workshops are also offered to professional and paraprofessional educators in the area who wish to better understand their own students with autism. Topics have included current trends in Autism diagnosis and treatment, understanding Applied Behavior Analysis and its use with children on the spectrum, playtime strategies for children with limited language, skills, and interests, and addressing challenging behaviors. The workshops are offered free to parents and caregivers, and a nominal fee is charged for professionals.
