Description:

Presented by Carol M. Smith, M. Ed. and Suzanne Alexander, M.M.

Find out how children with autism process information and perceive the world differently.  Discover methods that enable these children to first understand and feel comfortable with the concepts that make up their own way of thinking.  See how these concepts can then be used to teach and explain all of the same information to children with autism that other children learn.

 Understand the motivations and behaviors of children who are faced with the experience of being born into the world with a perfectly legitimate way of thinking that is not used, understood, or validated by the people around them when they are very young.

Learn how the stress of having this completely different way of processing information and perceiving the world leads to the child displaying the symptoms of autism as the child gets older because these differences are not addressed.
