Event Description

This workshop will break down some of the basic skills needed for true self-determination, and evaluate them according to how to teach these skills to your ASD students over time. Guided by her experience as a TEACCH teacher, therapist, and author; together with what she has learned from listening to the autistic community, Catherine Faherty will suggest strategies for parents, teachers, and therapists as they work with children, teens, and adults, with the goal of laying a foundation for self-determination.

Stephanie Madrigal - This workshop is designed to help parents and professionals better understand the inner minds of individuals with social learning challenges. We introduce the Informal Dynamic Social Thinking Assessment, a tool described in Michelle's book, Thinking About YOU Thinking About ME, 2nd Edition. IDST assessments are not only useful as part of the initial or three-year testing process. Instead, this type of assessment can be done on an ongoing basis to gauge students' abilities and needs across time.
