Florida Tech Plans Autism-Related Workshop Sept. 28

MELBOURNE, FLA.—Florida Institute of Technology’s School of Psychology offers free monthly workshops of particular interest to parents, educators and professionals who deal with issues of autism. The next event, on Sept. 28, is “Let’s Talk about Sex! Instructional Strategies for Parents and Educators Supporting Individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).” The session will be led by Kim Spence-Cochran, the UCF Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD) Brevard County.

This training will provide information regarding research-based “best practices” in the area of sexuality education for people with ASD.

The workshop will be most useful for parents, caregivers, agency representatives, and school- and community-based staff. Potential participants are cautioned that language and pictures presented at this session will be graphic in nature.
