Introduction to Autism Seminar
Chapel Hill TEACCH offers a seminar for parents with the goal of ensuring that all parents of children with a diagnosis of ASD have access to information that will help in better understanding autism as well as the behaviors and learning style that accompanies this disability. The focus of the seminar is understanding autism spectrum disorders, understanding the learning, social, communication, and behavioral needs of individuals with ASD, and understanding your child’s individuality and how to use this information to problem solve and advocate for them. This seminar is designed for parents of newly diagnosed individuals, but the information shared is helpful to all parents, regardless of a child’s age, development, or length of time since diagnosis. The seminar combines lecture, discussions, and time for individual questions. Call 919-966-5156 for more information.
