Oswego County Autism Task Force to Host Parent Seminar

The Oswego County Autism Task Force will be hosting a parent seminar on June 6.

“Creating a ‘What works Portfolio’” will be presented by Kristine O’Brien, parent outreach coordinator from Syracuse University Parent Advocacy Center, the Mid-State Special Education Parent Center.

This is a collection of strategies to share to assist parents and students in communicating a child’s strengths and needs for the new school year.  This activity based training will help parents and students create their own portfolio.

The seminar will take place at the First Presbyterian Church, Wilcox Hall, 4361 Church St., Mexico.

Registration and a light dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the presentation going from 6 – 8 p.m.

Please contact Tammy Thompson at (315) 349-3510 to register by May 30.

Limited child care is available, please inquire while registering.

This parent seminar will assist the task force in its mission to provide information that enhances the lives of those touched by Autism Spectrum Disorder in Oswego County.
