Kosair Charities enTECH Center at Spalding University will live stream two University of Kentucky’s Human Development Institute seminar series presentations:
“Navigating the Challenges of Transition: Supporting Youth in Educational, Community Living and Pediatric-to-Adult Healthcare Planning”
This Seminar topic targets parents, youth with disabilities themselves, professionals in education, social workers, rehab counselors, psychologists, licensed professional counselors and educators. The presenters focus on how to help youth with special needs, their parents or guardians, and professionals identify where the youth is in the process of planning for transition to adulthood and how to plan for the next steps.
“Transition and Beyond for Youth and Young Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder”
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. 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.
The live-streams of both events will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 144 of the Kosair Charities College of Health and Natural Sciences Building (901 S. Third St.).
