Webinar - Live - Interventions For Autistic Children and Youth with Tracie Lindblad
Interventions for Autistic Children and Youth:
What are they? What do they target? Where can I access these?
There are a variety of services and programs available for children and youth with autism that specifically target later developing skills that are important for school success, transition to secondary and for community access and employment. Some of these programs are offered in the Ontario Autism Program (OAP) under the categories of Foundational Family Services and Core Services.
This webinar will highlight the most common programs and treatments and will provide a description of the intervention, the current research support, the intended outcomes, and the availability of these programs for families across Ontario.
This webinar is appropriate for families and caregivers of autistic children and youth aged 6 to 18 years, as well as professionals working with autistic children and youth.
