1. Facts and Fiction
There is a great deal of misinformation and confusion regarding issues such etiology, prognosis and treatment options. In order to effectively navigate the maze of ASD it is essential to critically analyze the issues that parents and professionals confront on a daily basis so as to develop the most effective intervention strategies.
2. Maximizing Progress
Students with ASD have tremendous potential. Unfortunately, the expectations for students with ASD have historically be way to low. This has greatly effected how children are taught. Lower expectations have influenced decision on educational strategies as well as curriculum. Effective programing efforts can help our student’s reach their potential and most importantly maximize the quality of their lives.
3. Enriching Social Lives of Children with Autism

Relatively limited attention has been devoted to the social area, and has typically focused on basic skills. Some approaches attempt to address more complex social skills, yet commonly propose experiences that merely produce social effects.

The afternoon will discuss why development of social skills and a social skills curriculum is critical in a good intervention program. As well as discussion of currently available approaches
