Rethinking Potential for Autistic Youth

April 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Rethinking Potential for Autistic Youth

Join us as we examine the concept of limitless potential in autism. How we define potential in autism is a process of understanding and determining what achievement and fulfillment mean for individuals on the autism spectrum. This encompasses identifying and celebrating their unique strengths, accomplishments, and personal growth, as well as fostering an environment that supports their individual journey toward a fulfilling life.

Throughout the session, participants will:

  • Gain insights into the power of presuming competence and fostering an environment of limitless potential for individuals on the autism spectrum.
  • Explore practical strategies for identifying and nurturing a child’s passions and interests, emphasizing the importance of personalized learning and growth.
  • Discover the impact of recognizing and leveraging a child’s strengths and preferences to unlock their limitless potential and promote overall well-being.

Speakers:

  • Moderated by Dr. Shayne Horan, VP of Schools at The Help Group
  • Sue Anne Kaples, Director of Schools at The Help Group
  • Dr. Laurie Stephens, Senior Director of Autism & Clinical Services at The Help Group

Drawing from personal anecdotes and real-life experiences, Ms. Kaples and Dr. Stephens will weave a narrative that celebrates the unique journey of each individual with autism.
