Description

Amy Laurent, Per‐Course Instructor, Communicative Disorders; and Dr. Anita Jackson, Clinical Assistant Professor, Pharmacy Practice. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is currently diagnosed in 1 out of 68 children in the United States. Predominately a social disorder with potential for speech delays and sensory dysregulation, children and young adults with ASD often struggle in a school system that focuses on academic performance while minimizing support in key areas affected by ASD. Early interventions with intensive, individualized therapy and support are critical to help students thrive not only academically, but in all aspects of their lives! Join this panel discussion with an educator/ psychologist and a parent of a child with Autism to share experiences, ask questions, and hear examples of struggles and successes of children with ASD as they navigate the public school system.
