Presenter: Patricia O’Connor - Integrated Autism Consulting
A desire to teach, along with her brother’s diagnosis of Autism, helped her develop a keen interest and awareness in the field of Special Education leading to a Master’s in Education in Special Education. She has a wide spectrum of exposure in education. This includes in-class teaching in all four divisions involving regular and special education classrooms, resource teacher and consultant roles. The last 16 years of her education career were focused on developing and providing innovative approaches for the provision of ASD services for various school boards throughout Ontario. Activities involved intervention individuals with ASD in crisis, instituting demonstration ASD classrooms, writing and presenting workshops as well as university courses.
Throughout the years there has been an ongoing emphasis on integration into the broader school population and advocating for systemic implementation of exemplary practices in ASD education. Her experience and interests have generated a history of development and implementation of special education/ASD programs and in-service professional development training in Canada and the developing world.
