Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a very common developmental disability, impacting every one in 54 children. What is true for one person with autism may not be true for another, which can be challenging for kids and teens with the condition as well as for caregivers trying to understand ASD.
So for children and adolescents who feel that they live in a world that does not accommodate their neurodiversity, how can we help them feel more comfortable in their environment? In what ways can we help them not only survive, but thrive?
Join us as Laura Mead, MSEd, MBA, explains how we can provide both flexible and supportive structure for children and teens with autism spectrum disorder, shares tips to reduce stress in both caregivers and kids, and answers questions about ASD.
Please Note: Continuing education credits (CME, CEU) are not available for these webinars.
