HANDS in Autism® Next Steps™ Workshop (Online)

August 21, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The HANDS in Autism® Next Steps™ workshop is an interactive workshop that will provide stakeholders an opportunity, as a diverse group, to learn about and discuss general information about the autism spectrum disorder (ASD), adjusting to the diagnosis, and how to make appropriate treatment decisions and create support strategies. A comprehensive manual providing information on ASD, diagnosis, family considerations, resources and supports, treatment and intervention, rights and regulations, as well as practical strategies, is distributed to the registered workshop attendees (one per registered household).

Next Steps™ is primarily designed for primary caregivers who have a child that has recently been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. However, this workshop may also be beneficial for other caregivers, educational or therapy professionals, medical providers, and other adult family members.

This online community workshop is hosted by the Northcentral & Southwest LCC Regions to address their regional cadre goals. However, registration and participation is open to anyone–regardless of location.   

When: Friday, August 21, 2020 (3:00 – 5:00 PM EST)

Cost: Free, thanks to the kind sponsorship from Kappa, Kappa, Kappa, Inc.

Where:  Online Zoom event* (Registered participants will receive the connection link a day or two before the event.)

* To comply with COVID-19 precautions of social distancing–yet still provide access to this useful information, these workshops will be provided in a virtual format through a Zoom meeting. Registered participants will have electronic access to the Next Steps Manual and will receive information and instructions for joining this virtual event prior to the scheduled workshop.

If you need information, tools or supports to assist you or those you care for or serve with ASD during the Corona Virus Pandemic, visit our website for access to resources at https://handsinautism.iupui.edu/.
