In-Services/Presentations on Autism
In-services and presentations emphasize instruction on the nature of autism spectrum disorders and effective strategies for teaching persons with this disorder. These consultations are successful in strengthening continuity across various programs and settings. Additionally, consultations can be individualized to meet the needs of the audience.
Observations for Individuals with Autism (School, Church, etc.)
Easterseals Midwest Autism Services staff will observe individuals with autism spectrum disorders within their natural environment and then provide feedback and recommendations to the teachers, therapists or other staff. Oftentimes, observations are followed by an in-service appointment in order to enable the staff to meet with the individual's entire team.
School/Individualized Education Plan Autism Support
Easterseals Midwest Autism Services will provide support for an individual with an autism spectrum disorder at his/her Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or team meetings. Easter Seals Midwest's role includes assisting the team in writing appropriate goals and determining the most effective placement for the individual.
