Schedules: At a Glance

Schedules: At a Glance!

August 24, 2017
2:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

Individuals with ASD often feel lost and anxious when daily activities are not clearly indicated or if the sequence of those activities is not understood.  Teachers and parents may find themselves offering repeated cues and high levels of support to help the individual move from activity to activity.  One solution???  Create visual schedules that tell the individual where they should be, when they should be there, and what they will be doing.  This webinar will provide a step-by-step process for creating and using visual schedules that reduce anxiety and frustration, while supporting independence from adult-delivered prompts.
This webinar is geared toward educators that may be new to teaching students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), family members seeking more information about visual schedules, or seasoned educators looking to refine their skills.

Shining Light on ASD and Essential Supports

2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Live online via Adobe Connect

Everyone utilizes essential support strategies throughout their day. Which essential support(s) have you used in the last 24 hours? Visuals (maps, signs, recipes)? Priming (agendas, reminders, notices)? Form of Communication (text messages, emails)? Accommodations/modifications (glasses, watches, highlighters)? Reinforcement (paycheck, awards, bonuses)? As you can see, we use these essential supports several times throughout the day without even thinking about it. Join us in learning how these everyday supports can be used in classrooms and at home to support individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) be successful and avoid frustration. In this webinar, you will learn about the essential support strategies, how to implement them for students with ASD and related disabilities, and develop a plan for implementing essential supports across settings.
