OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego County Autism Task Force proudly presents a workshop for both parents and professionals this February.
The focus will be on keeping the lines of communication open between home and school for children with special needs.
Effective personalized communication books, including samples, take home materials, and binders will be offered, while a panel of parents, educators, and service providers share the benefits of this simple yet very effective measure that can help children with Autism and the people who are interacting with them on a daily basis.
Each person in attendance will go home with their own communication binder, including personalization in areas of Functional Behavior Assessments, Picture Schedules, Assistive Technology, ABC Charts, and Daily/Weekly Logs.
The panel discussion will follow along with open discussion.
Workshops are being offered on Feb. 24 from 6 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 9 p.m. at Mexico Elementary School and on Feb. 25 from 6 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 9 p.m. at Minetto Elementary School.
Sign-in and pizza and salad dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the workshop beginning promptly at 6 p.m.
