Online “Open” Workshop – Asperger’s/Autism 102: What’s Next? for Parents of Newly Diagnosed Children/Teens/Young Adults (through age 22), 2/27/23, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM ET

February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, Free

DESCRIPTION: Families are often unsure what to do upon learning their child or teen has an Asperger/autism diagnosis. Whether handed a report with dozens of recommendations or leaving a clinician’s office with none, this workshop will give you tools and ideas for a path forward. Topics include crafting a vision for your child and your family to help with decision making, figuring out the “right” services, getting started with educational advocacy, public supports, respite, and more. This presentation builds on information presented in AANE’s AS101 workshop describing the Asperger/autism profile; participants can take the workshops as standalone or in either order.

TIME: 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM ET
