Autism Thinking: Understanding the Core Characteristics of ASD and How to Support an Individual Across the Day (for NECC Faculty & Staff)

May 24, 2023, 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm

“Autism Thinking” is designed to inform participants of the neurodevelopmental characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Topics include, but are not limited to; Executive Functioning, Context Blindness, Theory of Mind, Central Coherence, Joint Attention, and One-Channel Processing. An understanding of these characteristics and challenges arms participants with the knowledge required to support individuals with ASD in their daily lives (in the classroom, in the home, or in the community). This presentation ends with a discussion of the methods used to support individuals with ASD. These practical tools and strategies will help participants be proactive and confident in their efforts to support individuals with autism in a variety of settings.

Facilitator: Ariana DeAngelis – Manager of Adult Training – The Autism Project – Johnstone, RI
