Tuesday January 24 6:30 - 9:00 pm
I suspect a child in my early learning/child care program may have Autism? What should I do?
Learn the what, where, why and how of autism and that autism is not a result of something parents did, nor is it a learning disability. Also, discover why some children “get” Autism and some children don’t and why Autism is now prevalent in 1/90 Canadian children when in 2003, the prevalence rate was reported to be 5/1000.
This workshop will review:
1. possible causes
2. early signs and symptoms
3. various treatments
4. teaching tips for care providers
Participants will also be introduced to the M-CHAT Checklist for Autism in Toddlers and will understand the differences between the numerous labels such as Classic Autism, Aspergers, and Persuasive Developmentally Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified
