Event Details

STAR Sharing Treatment and Autism Resources

 

 

The Model Inclusion Child Care (MICC) program at CARD is a full-day daycare/ preschool program for typically developing children ages 3 - 6. MICC provides a play-based curriculum that emphasizes communication, social development and early academic and literacy skills. Children also spend part of their day serving as peer models for children with autism during their assigned Achievements therapeutic groups lead by a certified speech-language pathologist. This presentation will focus on the MICC, program and its relationship with the Achievements program. We will look at the social and academic curriculum for this typical preschool classroom. We will also review successful strategies for supporting typically developing peers to be social role models for children with autism.
