Autism now affects one in 68 children and one in 42 boys, according to Autism Speaks, a nonprofit. As a teacher, it’s likely that you will have an autistic student in your classroom in the upcoming school year.
This summer we’re delivering a workshop for educators, parents and caregivers. Presenters are autism and behavior specialists Dr. Susan Catlett and Dr. Beverly Braman, founders of Autism in Action. They are sharing their combined 50 years of practical experience in the classroom working with students with autism. Their step-by-step teaching program is easy to understand and effective.
The Summer Autism Institute gives parents and educators the opportunity to interact for two days on June 22 and 25. Teachers, special education specialists, families and caregivers will be attending our daylong, two-day training.
Please share this information with a fellow parent or educator so that they can benefit from Autism in Action®. Catlett and Braman show how to use applied behavior analysis, or ABA, as a part of everyday life.
