The challenges of supporting a child with ASD are many, and the amount of research and interventions currently available can be overwhelming.

This presentation is full of humor, reality, and practical ideas.

Objectives: 1. Participants will explore key strategies for assisting a person with autism in the school and community environments. 2. Participants will increase understanding of characteristics and their connection to outward behavior. 3. Participants will increase knowledge of specific social skills to teach individuals with autism.
