Webinars on Transition and Autism

by Mary Mazzoni on November 13, 2011

Are you the parent or teacher of children with autism?  Here are some valuable resources.

Dr. Peter Gerhardt

A truly important (and dynamic) webinar by Dr. Peter Gerhardt is offered on the Rethink Autism website.

Dr. Gerhardt is Chair of the Scientific Council for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR). He has 30 years experience in applied behavior analysis in support of adolescents and adults with autism in school, employment and community environments.

This webinar by Dr. Gerhardt is entitled “Evidence-Based Practices in Support of Competence and Quality of Life”. It’s filled with practical research-based strategies for prioritizing, teaching and supporting the adaptive and functional skills our kids need for a fulfilling life of dignity and contribution.  At work, home, and as part of their community.

The webinar is set up in three parts, so you don’t have to watch it in one sitting. There’s so much content here, especially in parts 2 and 3, you’ll want to return to it periodically.

DON”T miss this webinar!

Click here to access it for free at the Rethink Autism website.

A great companion resource is the Transition to Adulthood Guide at the OAR website. Download it here.

FYI

I receive no benefit and have no affiliate relationships with any of the organizations mentioned in this post.

My goal is to connect you with resources of genuine benefit to you and your child. You’ll need to discern the content that is most relevant for your circumstances at this time.
