Thanks to a new collaboration between the Martin-Pitt Partnership for Children and the Autism Society of North Carolina, the Partnership will be offering two trainings dedicated to working with children on the autism spectrum. Autism Resource Specialist Katie Fox Holler will be providing two trainings, Autism 101 and Autism: Building on Strengths to Overcome Challenges.
About Katie & The Autism Society
The Autism Society of North Carolina improves the lives of individuals with autism, supports their families, and educates communities. Autism Resource Specialists are available to help families in every county of North Carolina, and are all parents of children or adults with autism themselves, so they have firsthand knowledge and a unique understanding of what parents and families are going through. They also are trained professionals with many years of experience. Learn more about Katie and her family here.
Autism: Building on Strengths to Overcome Challenges
This workshop offers parents and professionals a more in-depth look at the four core deficits of Autism Spectrum Disorder. From there, we will explore how these core deficits may trigger challenging behaviors and how to build on your child’s strengths to overcome those challenges.
This is the perfect workshop for anyone who wants to develop a basic understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder [ASD] by exploring the four core areas affected by ASD: communication, social interaction, sensory issues, and how an individual may think and learn.
