This 2-day highly interactive workshop will provide participants with a basic working knowledge of TEACCH methodology (Treatment and Education of Autistic and other Communication Handicapped Children) and its role in working with students with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities. Physical structure of the learning environment and visual structure of learning materials will be discussed and demonstrated. Visual structure of learning materials will also be practiced in hands-on activities. Visual structure may be used to provide accommodations as well as modifications of materials. Participants will also practice structuring a variety of visual schedules and work systems. 

 These types of structure are well researched and are effective interventions for students with ADHD, cognitive disabilities, multiple disabilities and learning disabilities as well as for students on the autism spectrum. Using TEACCH strategies in understanding and working with other characteristics of autism spectrum disorders, such as communication, social skills, and behavior will also be thoroughly addressed.

This event is open to the public.
