Description

Register now for the 26th Annual School and Community Counselor Conference! This year, we are thrilled to have two local NC experts on treating clients and students with Autism Spectrum Disorder from TEACCH.

Structured TEACCHing is an array of teaching and treatment strategies based on our understanding of the unique cognitive abilities associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This framework for understanding and treating autism emphasizes partnering with the individual/family and the use of visual supports to provide meaning, promote independence, and capitalize on the individual’s strengths.

This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the learning styles in autism and fundamental elements of Structured TEACCHing as applicable to school and community counseling settings.

Michele Villalobos, PhD, is the Clinical Director of the Asheville TEACCH Autism Center and Assistant Professor with the Department of Psychiatry at UNC Chapel Hill.
Britt Patterson, MA, MS, is an Autism Specialist in the Asheville TEACCH Autism Center and Clinical Instructor with the Department of Psychiatry at UNC Chapel Hill.
