WAITLIST: Autism Spectrum Disorder: Beyond the Diagnosis – Foundational Family Service

August 12, 2023 @ 9:30am - 12:00pm

This 2 ½ -hour workshop teaches parents and caregivers strategies and tools to help their children and youth understand their diagnosis, using a strengths-based approach.   Explaining and answering questions related to a diagnosis may be a lifelong discussion, and difficult to navigate.

Dr. Peter Vermeulen is an author, lecture and consultant in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

As a result of participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • list key components of discussing a diagnosis
  • apply a positive strengths-based approach to discussions with persons with ASD regarding their diagnosis
  • describe why a positive strengths-based approach is important
