Children with socially challenging disorders such as Asperger's Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Non-Verbal Learning Disorders, and ADHD often fall through the cracks of our educational systems. In this workshop learn to become more effective in supporting these children by using specific strategies to: successfully communicate with families to maintain positive home/school relationships; develop a repertoire of interventions that may be used immediately; and institute methods of explicitly teaching organizational skills. These strategies and interventions can be applied in a regular classroom setting. You'll leave with specific techniques to help you make school a more successful place for children with Asperger's.
