Supporting Autistic Children in Religious Schools
January 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$18
What exactly is Autism Spectrum Disorder? What are some signs that a child may have ASD? And how can we better support children with autism in our religious school classrooms? In this training, participants will learn the answers to these questions and more.
This one-hour Zoom workshop is part of Gateways’ series of “Introduction to Neurodiversity” drop-in sessions for religious school educators. Participants can expect to gain an understanding of each topic, explore how the relevant diagnosis will present in a religious school setting, and leave with three concrete strategies to bring back to their classrooms.
Workshop cost is $18 per person for schools within the CJP catchment area, and $36 per person for schools beyond the Boston area.
