A two-day Autism Summit will be provided for teachers, special education counselors and administrators by Harris County Department of Education on April 9-10 from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at 6300 Irvington Blvd. in Houston, Texas.
Presenting is education consultant Paula Kluth, expert in differentiated instruction, or tailoring instruction to meet needs of individual students.
Kluth provides two presentations for the two-day summit: “You’re Going to Love This Kid: Educating Students with Autism in Inclusive Schools” and “Text Maps to Memory Caps: Differentiating Instruction in K-12 Classrooms.”
April is National Autism Awareness Month, and the Autism Society says autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability. Prevalence of autism in the United States is estimated at one in 59 births.
The summit is supported through the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities. Cost is $150 for in-county registrants (Harris County) and $165 for out-of-county. Register: https://bit.ly/2Fk1JL9
