Join us as Dr. Stephen Shore, internationally renowned educator, consultant, and author, presents the 3 A’s of Autism: Awareness to Acceptance to Appreciation as a pathway to fulfilling and productive lives.
Dr. Shore's vast experience will charge participants to reframe your thinking away from deficit, disorder, and disability towards seeking abilities based on individual strengths.
Join CIP with Stephen in his mission of improving lives of individuals with autism through exploring the “3 A’s of Autism” that individuals, organizations, and even entire countries experience.
In this webinar, you will learn to:
- Understand the context of awareness and acceptance as a pathway towards appreciation where people on the autism spectrum are valued for who they are
- Describe at least 2 examples where a perceived weakness can be considered as a strength for leading a fulfilling and productive life
- Transition from thinking of autism in terms of deficit, disorder, and disability to an abilities based model of autism by asking what can the individual do
This webinar originally took place Tuesday, Oct 22, 2019, 12 pm - 1 pm EDT
