Autism NOW Webinar: Employment for People with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Part II
Employment for People with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and More Significant Support Needs: Part II
The registration for this webinar is closed, and it is now only available on-demand.
Time: Thursday, October 20, 2011 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST
Speaker: Alan Kurtz and Janine Collins
Part II, a continuation of last week’s webinar, will focus on behavior. “What we got here is a failure to communicate” is a famous line said by Paul Newman in his 1967 movie “Cool Hand Luke.” This presentation will relate to this reference, while covering topics which include: positive effects that employment can have on individuals with ASD, how a good job match supports positive behavior, strategies for determining the function of challenging behavior, as well as ways to support people with sensory and anxiety differences who cannot communicate what they are experiencing.
