Next Steps into Adolescence – Virtual

  • Thursday, February 16th, 2023
  • 1:00pm – 3:30pm
  • This virtual workshop is geared toward parents, caregivers and professionals supporting individuals on the autism spectrum who are between the ages 9-15. As children approach and enter the teenage years, they must deal with physical growth spurts, mindboggling hormone releases, and ever-changing and challenging social relationships. For pre-adolescent children with autism, these already complicated physical and social changes may be compounded by the difficulties of reading social cues and understanding the behaviors of others. We will hear from a psychologist, developmental pediatrician and several parents who have successfully navigated this phase with their own children.
