Supporting Families New to Autism


Wednesday, April 7, 2021
10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.


Sharon Janosik, Family Leader, Families 2 the Max
Tammi Morton, Project Coordinator, PEAL Center


Description: Supporting families as they learn about autism and their child is much easier when you have “inside information” about common concerns and what the child’s perspective might be. We will talk about speech versus communication, sensory differences and social-relational issues, with the aim of meeting both the child’s and the family’s need for a safe, supportive environment where children and adults can learn and grow.
