Adolescents with Autism Workshop


"Critical Issues for Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder"

Aug. 29- Behavior Solutions for Adolescents with Severely Limiting Autism
Maria Wheeler: Adolescence combined with severely limiting autism presents a unique challenge for the affected individual, families, educators and therapists.  In this session, we will explore age appropriate interventions for addressing behavioral concerns including aggression, refusal to work, stripping, self-stimulation, ineffective communication, offensive communication, echolalia, sexual behavior, seizure-related behaviors, wandering, non-compliance and other behaviors that commonly interfere with social success and learning.  Maria Wheeler is the author of "A Treasure Chest of Behavioral Strategies for Individuals with Autism," and "Toilet Training for Individuals with Autism and Related Disorders."   
Aug. 30- Transitioning to Adulthood
Peter Gerhardt: Increasing attention is being paid to needs of learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as they enter adolescence and grow into adulthood.  Where job placement was once considered desirable, now the goal is career development.  Instead of residential placement, now there is talk of residential choices in support of quality of life.  This workshop will provide an overview of this movement toward transition planning for competent adulthood.  Social skills and sexuality will also be addressed in young adults with ASD.  Peter Gerhardt is the President of the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) and the founder of OAR's Scientific Council.
