Autism: An Information Night for Parents - Speaker Series Event
Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019
6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Sir Robert Borden High School - 131 Greenbank Road
Individuals with autism often struggle with managing anxiety, anger, or depression, and increasingly, interventions are being used to help address these difficulties. However, these treatments are best provided within a context of promoting thriving and positive growth more generally in people across the spectrum. In his presentation, our Keynote Speaker Dr. Jonathan A. Weiss, Ph.D., C.Psych, will look at how to promote positive outcomes in youth with autism, by focusing on indicators such as happiness, satisfaction and resilience.
Breakout sessions will be held as well following Dr. Weiss' presentation. These sessions are aimed at providing information on services and supports that are available through the Autism Spectrum Disorders Team within the OCDSB.
