Autism 101: An Overview of Autism Spectrum Disorders
Whitesburg Public Library
Monday April 15
Free to the Public
Autism Consultant and Neurodevelopment Specialist Elana Himmelfarb will be presenting an informational lecture on Autism Spectrum Disorders and the multiple ways they affect an individual’s life.
We will examine the main domains affected by Autism and Asperger’s and identify the areas that create challenges for many individuals and their families:
Social Awareness and Skills
Cognitive Ability, Executive Function and Learning
Physical and Medical Issues
Due to time constraints this lecture is intended to provide an initial broad overview of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Handouts will be provided. Elana is available in the future to continue the lecture series and explore Autism and Asperger’s in more depth based upon feedback and interest.
