Recurring Event Event Series: Supporting Children on the Autism Spectrum

Supporting Children on the Autism Spectrum

Two Part Community Health Worker Training:   

June 30, 2022 : 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

This is a TWO PART training. Attendance at June 23rd is required to particpate on June 30th. Please join us as we discuss the diagnosis of autism, how autism impacts people in different ways, and the types of tools used to support autistic clients.

This training is designed to inform participants of the neurodevelopmental characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Topics include, but are not limited to: Executive Functioning, Context Blindness, Theory of Mind, Central Coherence, Joint Attention, and One-Channel Processing. An understanding of these characteristics and challenges arms participants with the knowledge required to support individuals with ASD in their daily lives (in the classroom, in the home, or in the community).  This presentation ends with a discussion of the methods used to support individuals with ASD. These practical tools and strategies will help participants be proactive and confident in their efforts to support individuals with autism in a variety of settings.

Thanks to a preschool development grant from the Woonsocket, Bristol, and Central Providence Health Equity Zones, The Autism Project© is proud to offer this workshop.  This is a FREE training aimed at ensuring that children from birth – 5 years old receive proper support support. The HEZ’s are targeting professionals in the following zip codes: 02908, 02909, 02895, 02885, 02809.
