Registration now open for “Autism After School: 50 Challenges & Solutions” with Amy M. Maschue, CCC-SLP

| December 11, 2015
1 in 68 children is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder— a diagnosis which encompasses a wide range of complex development disorders. Every kid with autism brings their own unique talents, humor, perspectives and challenges to your out-of-school time program. But our challenge is how we can best meet their needs.
 
“Autism After School: 50 Challenges & Solutions” will give you a stronger understanding of autism spectrum disorder and the ways it can impact behavior and communication. Presenter Amy Maschue, a certified speech pathologist who has been working with Arizona children for over 15 years, will lead you through a discussion of common challenges and proven strategies for promoting meaningful communication and interactions with kids diagnosed with ASD.
This professional development workshop will teach you evidence-based practices that will empower you to create a fun, inclusive and enriching program environment for all youth. Each professional development session is 3 hours long, and fulfills DHS training requirements in the area of Growth and Development. The cost to attend is $35.00 per person with checks and purchase orders made payable to Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence.
