The Autism Society of Wisconsin is proud to co-host this 3 in 1 event with UW-Superior.
Zones of Regulation - A Concept to Foster Self-Regulation and Emotional Control
Presenter/Creator: Leah Kuypers, M.A., Ed., OTRL
This workshop will give adults tools for working with children with Autism who struggle with managing their emotions and sensory needs, addressing self-regulation, vocabulary of emotional terms, skills in reading facial expressions, perspective on how others see and react to behavior, insight on events that trigger their behavior, calming and alerting strategies, and problem solving skills.
Adventures with Autism - Social time for any youth or adult with ASD
While in the adult training, your child can be part of the Youth Program, hosted by the Challenge Center. The program will allow any youth or young adult on the autism spectrum the opportunity to engage in fun activities in an environment where they “fit in” with their peers. There will be games and crafts for active and quiet engagement, supervised by staff from the Challenge Center with extensive experience in working with youth and young adults with disabilities.
The Sibshop is for children ages 6-12 who are brothers and sisters of children with autism. This lively, but relaxed event will combine recreation, information, discussion, and give siblings the opportunity to celebrate the contributions and the challenges of their brothers and sisters with others their age who "get it".
