Description

Description

This weekend program will provide intensive instruction in key social, communication, and leisure skills for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) as well as a support group for their siblings. The instruction and support will be followed by an inclusive recreation activity in which children with autism can practice their new skills with their siblings and other typically-developing peers. Counseling students will run support groups; speech, psychology, and education students will conduct intensive instruction and provide support for the children with autism throughout the program; and physical education students will run the recreation activities. The children with autism and their siblings will benefit greatly from participation in this program, as the unique hands-on experiences will improve their knowledge and skills, ultimately improving service provision for children with autism and their families.
