enTECH will be hosting another of the University of Kentucky Human Development Institute Seminar Series.
“Transition and Beyond for Youth and Young Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder”
April 19, 2013
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Seminar (video conference) will be in Room 144 of the CNHS building (3rd & Breckinridge).
Registration is required.
Awareness and accurate knowledge about autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is important to support transitions for individuals with ASD across varied contexts. For transitions within public school settings, accurate teacher and peer knowledge about autism is important to support changes in educational placements, to different schools via graduation, or changes due to relocation.
The Collaborative Model for Promoting Competence and Success (COMPASS) is a consultation model that assists parents and teachers in making decisions about educational goals and teaching plans to ensure good educational outcomes for students with autism spectrum disorders. Information on COMPASS will be provided, including a description of two experimental controlled studies. A brief case study will be presented to demonstrate COMPASS in practice.
Part II of this presentation provides an overview of research findings and introduces materials for the purpose of educating peers, teachers, and employers about ASD. For transitions to employment settings, awareness and understanding of ASD is also important to support individuals with ASD. Materials developed by the Organization for Autism Research, which are freely available, are highlighted in the presentation.
