A full-day workshop for service providers and educators
Sponsored by Developmental Disabilities Services Division, HireAbility Vermont, Vermont APSE, and CDCI Supported Employment.
This training will deepen your understanding of students and young adults who experience autism. You will explore challenges related to communication, motivation, social interaction, anxiety, and sensory issues which can get in the way of education, employment, participation, and independence. You will explore the neurological basis of these challenges as well as positive-proactive strategies proven useful in assisting people to be successful in their high schools, employment, colleges, families, and communities.
