Learn a strengths-based process that will change
how you work
PART 1: Dive Deep into Autism Learning Styles
Go deep into how Autistic kids learn and experience the world based on the latest research and the experience of Autistic adults so that you can feel confident you understand your clients’ learning style way beyond the surface level.
PART 2: Take Your Clients' Perspective
Learn how to shift your perspective to truly consider the experience of your Autistic clients. This means looking beyond the behavior you can see and diving deep into how a child’s participation in daily routines is impacted by their learning style, interests, and strengths, as well as the demands of the environment.
PART 3: Plan Treatments with Confidence
Learn an autism-specific process that will allow you to generate a robust list of hypotheses and interventions every time you sit down with a new goal so that you can stop dreading treatment planning and start approaching it with confidence.
PART 4: Put It Into Action
Practice using this process together with Meg in using cases that are relevant to your own practice so that you walk away with fresh ideas to apply right away and experience applying them to your actual work. Even though it’s a replay, you’ll still have the time and space to come up with your own ideas and experience the process with the insight of a group supporting you.
EXTRAS: Get Resources to Support You
Get a workbook and a filliable PDF of the process to complete together with teachers and parents so that you can feel you truly have expertise in using an autism-specific, strengths-based lens, and so that your work can have the greatest impact possible.
