Feb. 13 - Transitioning to AdulthoodWith Peter Gerhardt: Increasing attention is being paid to needs of learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as they enter adolescence and grow into adulthood. Where job placement was once considered desirable, now the goal is career development. Instead of residential placement, now there is talk of residential choices in support of quality of life. This workshop will provide an overview of this movement toward transition planning for competent adulthood. Social skills and appropriate sexual behavior will also be addressed in young adults with ASD. Peter Gerhardt is the President of the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) and the Founding Chair of OAR's Scientific Council.

Feb. 14 - Behavior Solutions for Severe ASDWith Maria Wheeler: A dolescence combined with severely limiting autism presents a unique challenge for the effected individual, families, educators and therapists. In this session, we will explore age appropriate interventions for addressing behavioral concerns. These topics that directly relate to behavior will also be covered: daily schedule planning for the adolescent with autism, communication and visual supports, sensory issues and influences, aggression, tantrums, non-compliance, sexuality, and the adolescent need for independence. Maria Wheeler is the co-author of "A Treasure Chest of Behavioral Strategies for Individuals with Autism," and the author of "Toilet Training for Individuals with Autism and Related Disorders."
