Workshops from Mrs Kris Miller ( may vary by event location )
Identifying and Acknowledging Autism
Currently, approximately 1 in 68 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with autism. While early intervention and therapies can change the brain and provide beneficial outcomes for these children, many children remain undiagnosed and untreated. This workshop will assist in identifying autism in preschool and school-aged children. It will also provide direction for parents who are accepting the added responsibility of educating their unique children.
Embracing and Accommodating for Autism
Children on the autism spectrum have unique language and learning difficulties as well as social challenges, yet no two are alike. This workshop will provide strategies and resources for accommodating learning differences which these children often demonstrate. It will also provide direction for families who must advocate for their children within the family and in the community.
