February 12, 2013

Tulsa   OK
Presented by: Project PEAK Team

Asperger Syndrome (AS) is often considered a hidden disability. Children with AS can be quite bright and show great potential and ability to learn but have a great deal of difficulty in social situations. They may interrupt, take no interest in what others have to say, have difficulty following rules and show little empathy. Unfortunately, many of their behaviors leads to them being unsuccessful in the regular education classroom, bullied or picked on and may result in them being missed or is wrongly diagnosed.
During this workshop participants will:
-gain an understanding of the characteristics and identification of Asperger Syndrome (AS).
-gain information about how a student with AS may present in the classroom setting.
-learn strategies for working with students with AS including setting up a social/communication group, integrating student interests into learning activities, developing positive relationships with students with
AS, and dealing with unexpected behaviors and misunderstandings.
