Being an individual with autism or a caregiver for a family member with Autism can sometimes be challenging.  The Emory Autism Center will be hosting two upcoming events that focus on teaching new strategies to individuals living with Autism, as well as offering family caregivers innovative skill development to help with the daily management of the disorder.    

 

The Intensive ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) Training will help train individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, family members and their support personnel the necessary skills needed for support and living with this disorder. Social, leisure, and independent skills are just a few of the skills sets that individuals will learn at the event.  Families can invite up to four family members or personnel that help support the individual with the Autism Disorder.

 

The second event is the Monarch Annual School Inclusion Conference which is being held on July 21st & 22nd.  This conference is open for registration to teachers, therapists and family members.  Individuals will learn strategies and techniques that can be used to teach K-12 students with autism spectrum disorders; personal perspectives of those living with, and parenting a child with ASD.
