New Webinar: “Helping Your Teen Work Towards Independence”
We are pleased to announce our April Webinar “Helping your Teen Work Toward Independence as an Adult,” presented by Connor and Jessica Archer. This pre-recorded one-hour webinar is presented with families in mind, but also offers professionals a family perspective from an adult self-advocate and parent-professional. We encourage professionals to view and share with your students and their families.
This webinar explores different techniques and approaches to help teens work towards becoming independent as he/she enters adulthood. The presentation will focus on the early teen years, graduation from High School, and the transition to adulthood, with examples from the Archers’ personal experiences as an individual on the autism spectrum and a mother, who herself is an education professional
This webinar is free and contact hours are available upon completion of post-webinar survey. Resources and materials to guide you through the webinar are provided. Access this online webinar here.
