An Autism Workshop for Para-Educators, Childcare Providers & Direct Service Providers
Join Birchtree’s Occupational Therapist for a 1.5-hour workshop offering strategies for meeting the sensory needs of students with special needs such as autism. You’ll learn about the sensory processing challenges that many students with autism face. The presentation will also include time for questions and discussion.
The workshop is open to all–including educators, parents, and guardians–but the workshop is designed to be especially useful to para-educators and others who work one-on-one or in small groups with individuals with autism in school and childcare settings. Certificates of attendance are provided.
Parents, guardians, and caregivers who attend this workshop are also encouraged to attend the Autism Q&A on April 12 to get practical suggestions on how to develop their child’s sensory diet based on their child’s sensory needs.
Will the workshop be cancelled if it snows?
The workshop may be cancelled in the event of a major snowstorm or other inclement weather. If local schools are closed for the day, then the event will most likley be cancelled. All registered attendees will be notified by email and/or phone if the event will be cancelled.
