With 1 in 68 children in the US being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Centers for Disease Control, 2014) it is increasingly important for child care providers to learn more about supporting children with autism. This session will provide participants with detailed information including typical behaviors and interaction styles of a child with ASD and the challenges and stressors to the family with a child with ASD. Participants will examine examples of adaptations to communication, environment, and interactions to support the inclusion of a child with ASD. Participants will receive a collection of resources for use in your early childhood program.  Participants will receive .5 CEU credit hours.  (5  training hours/.5 CEU)

Participants select one training for the entire day. Educators, administrators, and ECE program staff are welcome to participate in this professional development day. The cost of $25.00 per person includes a box lunch and CEU and materials. Special prize drawings and opportunities to network with peers! Preference in enrollment will be given to educators who live or work in EEC Region 6. A Professional Qualifications Registry (PQR) number is required for registration. Email the EPS Region 6 Team at with any questions.
