Dr. Hunter will continue her discussion on toilet training and will transition to the topic of dealing with structure, or lack thereof, during the holiday season. Dr. Hunter will share strategies to help parents manage holiday chaos.
At previous trainings, she examined the pragmatic difficulties that autistic children present, such as theory of mind, which explains why autistic people may struggle to see other points of view. She also reviewed cognitive strengths and adaptive skills.
The training will be held on Tuesday, November 15 from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM at Soaring Heights School in State College. The training is free and open to the public. On-site daycare will be provided.
Dr. Hunter has years of experience working with and developing programming for students with autism spectrum disorder. Currently, she is a lecturer in the psychology department at Penn State University and serves as a behavioral consultant for Soaring Heights School in State College.
