On Saturday, April 21, 2012, CDS Monarch and Nazareth College will present the first annual “Voices for Autism” Conference at Nazareth College. The conference will bring together the expertise and experiences of families and professionals to address a variety of topics relevant to promoting lifelong advocacy and self-advocacy for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Dr. Paula Kluth will lead the morning keynote address, followed by presentations and roundtable discussions on topics including: supporting communication and prosocial behaviors, educational law and legal advocacy, increasing knowledge regarding available services and supports, developing strong supportive relationships across the community.
Dr. Kluth is a consultant, author, advocate, and independent scholar who works with teachers and families to provide inclusive opportunities for students with disabilities and to create more responsive and engaging schooling experiences for all learners.
I think this will be a highly informative conference for professionals,family members,and all members of our community who want to better understand and promote advocacy for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
