Instead of classifying behavior as deviant and pathological, this presentation will examine such patterns as part of human development and human behavior— a range of strategies to communicate and to cope with a world that feels confusing, overwhelming and frightening. Informed by published research, four decades of experience working with autistic people and their families, and first-person accounts, the experience of autistic people is addressed in a manner leading to a more respectful and developmentally appropriate approach. 12:15pm – 1:15pm: Lunch and Awards Presentation 1:15pm – 3:15pm: Lindsey Biel, “Sensory Smart™ Strategies for Real-Life Challenges” This presentation will help attendees understand sensory processing challenges and how they impact daily function.
