Autism: Understanding Sensory Needs & Applied Interventions

Tue Jun. 26 at 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Event Details


Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis rates are on the rise with new statistics from the CDC indicating approximately 1 in 59 children could be identified with having Autism. Many youth and their families face behavioral challenges in home, school, and the community that stem from a variety of factors, often times due to sensory integration and processing. Due to our understanding of Autism and how it affects each person individually, we know treatment methods and intervention often need to be creative and unique. Understanding how behavioral challenges can stem from unmet sensory needs can help with understanding the root of behaviors and allows for caregivers and providers to be better equipped for intervention.

Join us on June 26th as Aurora presents the June 2018 Lunch and Learn Series Autism: Understanding Sensory Needs and Applied Interventions presented by Aurora Staff Members: Helen Nagle MS (Director of the Specialized Needs Program), and Jordan Peterson MS (Community Liaison - Specialized Needs). This presentation will provide training on theory as well as practical interventions for parents and professionals.

Lunch is provided and CEU's (1.5 hours) are included.
