Time: 8:30AM to 3:30PM
The Tennessee Department of Education, in partnership with the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD), is pleased to provide an autism-specific workshop for school personnel titled Mission Possible: Uncovering the Secrets of Socialization for Elementary Students. Although social skills deficits are a primary feature of autism spectrum disorders (ASD), addressing the social needs of students remains one of the most difficult aspects of educational programming. Building social skills at an early age provides the foundation to support relationships that impact performance in school and beyond. This training will equip participants with the knowledge to better understand and assess the social needs of their students, as well as provide strategies for effective social programming. This full-day workshop is intended for parents, educators, administrators, and related service providers who support elementary students with ASD.
Registration is free. To register for the workshop, please contact Linda Copas with the Tennessee Department of Education via email or (615) 741-7790.
