Growing Up with Asperger’s

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM

  • Presenter: Kathy Isenhour
  • Target Audience: Special education teachers and general education teachers, counselors, school psychologists, and paraeducators
  • Description: This session will explore the challenges of being an adolescent and being diagnosed with autism spectrum (AS). The typical adolescent or teenager is bombarded daily with a mass amount of overwhelming sensory information. However, for the student with AS every social interaction could be compared to trying to solve a five hundred-piece puzzle with time restraints. The session will provide insight into the efforts those with AS must make just to get through a typical day.

Location: Indiana Wesleyan Education & Conference Center, Lexington
