Workshop 1 – March 20, 2016 (Sunday)

Navigating the Maze of ASD: How Do I Maximize Progress In My Child?

There is a great deal of misinformation and confusion regarding issues such as etiology, prognosis and treatment options for Autism Spectrum Disorder. This has greatly effected how children with ASD are taught. Though children with ASD have tremendous potential, the expectations for a child with ASD have historically been low. Lower expectations have influenced decision on educational strategies as well as curriculum. This workshop would show how effective programing efforts could help a child reach their potential and most importantly, maximize the quality of their lives.
