Thursday, August 17 - K-12 Teachers and Paraprofessionals: How to Teach Life Skills to Kids with Autism or Asperger's Presented by Jennifer Myers (Register through CSPD)
This talk is filled with practical real-world examples demonstrating how kids on the spectrum learn -- and how and why they don't learn -- the skills they need to help themselves, to get through the day, and to negotiate more of their world safely.
This talk and the book of the same title by Ms. Myers were written at the direction of Temple Grandin. Dr. Grandin feels that teaching life skills is a vital part of helping people on the autism spectrum lead better, more useful, less constrained lives.
This training is designed to teach, entertain, and inspire any audience desiring a better understanding of autism.
