On behalf of the organizing committee of the 2010 Workshop “Making Friends & Managing Feelings”, I would like to extend an invitation to you to join us at this exciting full day event!
The workshops will be taking place in Edmonton, Alberta on July 12th 2010 at the Oasis Edmonton Conference Centre
AND the Isabel Bader Theatre
We are proud to welcome world renowned Dr. Tony Attwood, a leading expert on Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorders. He will focus on providing practical strategies for working with children and adults on the autism spectrum in the areas of social difficulties, emotional regulation, love, bullying, relationships, and much more.
The main focus of the conference is “How to Make Friends & Manage Feelings for those with Autism Spectrum Disorders”, which includes a social curriculum as well as information on how to implement cognitive behavioural therapy. With a spotlight on adolescence, Dr. Tony Attwood will provide numerous ideas and activities to assist individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) as they traverse the complicated path from childhood to adulthood. He will provide tools to handle challenging behaviours, prevent temper outbursts, and increase social skills for all children and students.
This workshop will provide great advice and strategies to assist parents, family members, caregivers, physicians, educators, therapists, social workers, nurses, and other professionals in assisting children and adolescents in overcoming challenges, improving social understanding and relationships. This event will be very beneficial for parents and loved ones because not only will they get an incredible amount of information, they will be inspired. One of our main goals of this workshop is to give people hope and teach methods and strategies to enrich and enhance the lives of those with ASD as well as families, educators and professionals.
