Families First Taos, New Mexico Live-Stream Workshop: Make It and Take It Lab: Developing Visual Supports

Date: June 22, 2019

Time: 9:00AM to 12:00PM

Location: Taos, NM

A monthly workshop series for parents of young children with an autism spectrum disorder.

Program is free of charge.

Each 3-hour workshop focuses on providing parents and caregivers with strategies to use at home, school, and in the community. The strategies discussed are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

In this workshop, you will learn about, design, and create visual supports to use with your child. We will talk about three kinds of visual supports: visual schedules, task analyses, and social stories. For each visual support, you will learn what it is, how it works, and how you can use it with your child. You will also have the chance to make your own visual supports to take home with you!
