Event description

Description

In this informative three-hour program, educators and clinicians will learn about the use of effective visual and environmental supports for students on the autism spectrum. Dr. Woldoff will describe autism and it’s impact on the family, as well as school-based interventions, and the importance of effective behavior management. She will present a model of prevention – a hierarchy of strategies – for addressing challenging behaviors, and will describe how antecedent strategies and supports can be used to help resolve these behaviors.

Attendees will leave knowing:

  • a collection of simple, effective tools to reach students on the autism spectrum.
  • strategies for planning the classroom environment for success.
  • knowledge about how to use schedules and time planning aids.
  • effective strategies for teaching social rules and appropriate behavior.
