Jessie and Chris each presented Hot Topic webinars for Reading with TLC in the past. They are coming back by popular demand, this time joining forces as the globally renowned dynamic duo who cannot wait to help you. Join us in an important webinar presented by two premiere thought leaders in the area of autism. Dr. Barry Prizant famously said, “Autism is not a tragedy - it’s a different way of being human.” There continues to be a widespread, and very problematic belief that autistic children need to be “treated” or “fixed” to better fit into the world. This leads to goals that focus on suppressing autistic traits, leading to low self-esteem and burnout. Advocates of students on the spectrum have been raising their voices in support of the neurodiversity movement, which rests on the tenet that variations of the human brain are not just natural and inevitable, but a valuable and beautiful piece of human society. Yet, many are still viewing autistic children as problems to be solved.
In this presentation, Chris and Jessie will discuss reframing autism as a brain
difference, rather than a disorder, and will challenge you to consider how you can
change your methods to incorporate neurodiversity affirming strategies and strengths- based approaches. Attendees will walk away inspired to make a shift in their minds, practices, and everyday interactions with autistic students. If you are ready to transform your approaches with innovative and neurodiversity affirming strategies and tools, then you do not want to miss this.
