A Developmental Framework for Evidence-Based-Practices for the Autism Spectrum
Presented by Emily Rubin, MS, CCC-SLP
Providing evidence-based educational programming for children on the autism spectrum relies not only on selecting appropriate strategies but also an understanding of neurodevelopment. What we determine as the child's targeted educational objectives should be as important as how we are providing accommodations. The lecture will begin with a review of the research in social neuroscience and how this helps us understand how children acquire the foundations of social and emotional competence before they are talking, at emerging language stages, and at the conversational level. Participants will learn how neurodevelopmental differences need to be considered when implementing evidence-based practices and how the SCERTS assessment framework can be used to generate educational objectives that are predictive of developmental shifts toward social emotional competence.

Autism Basics: Understanding the Spectrum
Presented by Sharon Hammer, MS, PC, Lisa Hoeme, MS, CRC, LPC, Lisa Ladson, BA, CABA and Kim Schmidt, MS, LP C
This is an introductory workshop that will focus on providing a deeper understanding of autism and how people with autism experience the world. Presenters will discuss common characteristics of autism, strategies for effectively supporting people on the spectrum, and other autism-related resources. This workshop will be based on recent research, first person accounts from those on the spectrum, and personal experiences from the practice of the presenters. You will leave this session with a greater understanding of how autism may impact how a person learns, interacts with others, and develops relationships.
Saturday's keynote session will be a panel of individuals on the autism spectrum, who will each share about their experience living life on the autism spectrum. Each panelist will have time to give an introduction and share about how autism affects their day to day life. A range of topics will be covered including, but not limited to, visual thinking, self-stimulatory behaviors, and the experiences as an individual with autism who types to communicate. There will be time for audience questions at the end.
