Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Neurodiversity

Presented by Cathy Blatnik, Mid-Michigan Autism Association 

This program will explain what Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is and what it is not and ways you can support your family and your child with ASD. After the program you should be able to identify features associated with a diagnosis of ASD, common myths and misconceptions about ASD and strategies to support families and individuals with ASD.

Extension Extras Parenting Hour is a free online series of parenting workshops that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the challenges, joys, and concerns of parenting.

Certificates for participation are provided upon completion of the class.

Participants have the option to attend and actively participate via computer, or an app on a tablet or smartphone. Attendees can also listen to the presentation via phone (by calling in). Those who choose to call in must contact the instructor for directions on how to be eligible for a certificate.

If multiple people in the same location want to participate in the webinar and need certificates, they have to join the webinar separately or contact the instructor for special instructions to each receive a certificate.
