Advocacy for Students with Autism Workshop

The Illinois Center for Specialized Professional Support (ICSPS) is excited to host Milt Wright and Richard Pimentel in an engaging day discussing advocacy.  The goal of the day is to provide participants with ideas to help students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD):
  • discover their own value as individuals,
  • embrace positive lessons that their impairments have taught them,
  • learn ideas to overcome negative stereotypes and cultivate positive social interactions, and
  • learn how to effectively disclose their disability to ask for a reasonable accommodation.

Participants will have the opportunity throughout the day to engage in activities, brainstorm innovative ways to adapt the ideas presented to specifically serve students with autism, and obtain materials that can be used to support families as they help their teen successfully learn to self-advocate.

We invite Special Education teachers and administrators, Community College Student Service Personal, Career Counselors, Adult Education providers, parents of students with ASD and anyone who wants to learn more about empowering students with autism.  Event information is as follows:
