Biopsychosocial Autism Training
Date: June 24, 2020
Time: 4 p.m.
Location: Parent Library
If your child has autism, choosing treatments for healthcare and behavioral concerns can be difficult. Your child can’t always tell you what is bothering them, and in some cases, their symptoms “look” different than symptoms seen in children who don’t have autism. It can be hard to know whether a child’s behavior is a result of a medical issue (needing treatment at a doctor’s office) or if it’s a symptom/concern that would be better treated by a psychologist or other specialists. ChildServe experts Suzanne Richards, Ph.D., Leslie Rogers, M.S., CCC-SLP will present on behavior problems seen in children and young adults with ASD. They will share many of the commonly misunderstood symptoms that can be caused by biological, psychological, and social factors. You will leave this training with a better understanding of which symptoms to watch for, and which healthcare professionals to partner with when you see them.
This free class will be held in the Parent Library at ChildServe in Johnston at 4 p.m. To register, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
