Autism and Self-Advocacy Workshops

Autism and Self-Advocacy Workshops
Saturday, April 6
Transitions, 2736 NY-30, Mayfield, NY 12117
Registration: 9:30-10 a.m.

 

Thrive on the Autism Spectrum — Keys to Unlocking Social Potential and Independence | 10:00—11:30 a.m.

Is trying to help your child or grandchild with ASD regulate emotions and behaviors and learn social skills stressing you out? Learn how to help children on the spectrum thrive and become more independent as they grow into adults!

Kids with autism often struggle to relate to friends, teachers and employers. They also need to learn skills for independent living so they can transition to as self-sufficient a life as possible. Our presenters will share information on how to build essential social skills and offer strategies to help them learn to be independent and regulate themselves better at home and in school. Presented by Dr. Gina Cosgrove and Kelly Brock, MS. 

Speak Up! Take Charge of Your Success! | 11:30 a.m.—12:30 p.m.

How can young adults with autism or learning differences gain essential self-advocacy skills? Hear from young adults who have “walked the walk” and can share their own personal experiences.

Learn how to advocate for yourself in college and the workplace! Our presenters will discuss how Self-Discovery and Leadership classes build confidence in students with autism and learning differences who must learn to advocate to secure the support and accommodations they need to be successful. Presented by Priya Winston, LMSW, and Coty Rulison.

 

FREE childcare is available! While parents attend the event, kids will enjoy crafts, games and sensory activities with trained staff.

AUDIENCE: Teens and young adults with ASD; parents, grandparents or professionals who work with kids with ASD ages 3 to 25.

REGISTER: Fee is $25 for professionals or FREE for people with ASD and their families. To sign up, contact Maria Nestle at 518-661-9932 / nestlem@thearclexington.org OR visit https://bit.ly/2TdbYWM.
