What You Will Learn

A recent CDC (Centers for Disease Control) report states that "1 in 88 children have autism." The number is far more prevalent in males (1 in 56 school-aged).
Over the last decade the numbers with autism have increased at a startling rate. While some people attribute the increase on better diagnosis, researchers\' state there is no clear correlation. None of this, however, equips educators in dealing with problem behaviors or making accommodations for these students.
Highlights of this information-packed 90-minute webinar include:

  • Unfolding new insights & strategies for clarifying the similarities and differences between these often misunderstood diagnoses and treatment protocols
  • Recognizing myths, truths and common cultural disagreements regarding etiology, prognosis and intervention
  • Discerning the accurate application of the DSM-5
  • Understanding the new features of the DSM-5.
  • Emphasis on the DSM-5 diagnostic changes and its implications in the home, community and school environments.
  • Mastering challenging moments with students/ children who do not respond to typical interventions.
  • What every educator needs know about working with students on the borderline & whom are undiagnosable

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Address common misunderstandings educators have about these students and the best ways to treat / accommodate.
  • Recognize the pros and cons of the DSM-5.
  • Utilize sensory integration.
  • Master challenging moments with students/ children who do not respond to typical interventions.
