Iowa City Autism Community is Sponsoring FREE Visual Supports Workshop

The Iowa City Autism Community has partnered with the University of Iowa Stead Children’s Hospital Autism Center to host a FREE visual supports workshop. This event is open to parents, educators and service providers. Sue Askeland will be presenting this workshop on visual supports for individuals on the autism spectrum. Focus will be on schedules, transitions, and other issues that individuals on the autism spectrum may benefit from getting visual support. Iowa City Autism Community is sponsoring the cost of this event so that all participants can leave with their own visual support materials.

This event is for parents, caregivers, and those who work with autistic individuals. Childcare is not available. Parking in Ramp 3.

The Iowa City Autism Community thanks Sue Askeland,MA and The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital Autism Center for their partnership and generosity in hosting this event.

Understood Sponsors Free 2E Binder Making Event

Join Understood.org and the Cooridor 2E Group to create a binder that will be helpful with twice-exceptional students for IEP meetings. Built upon a strengths focus, resources will be provided for advocating for our kids whose intellectual gifts and other disabilities co-exist. Materials will be provided!

Parents with children of all ages are encouraged to attend (even adult children). We learn from our friends who have traveled this road ahead of us. Please bring your words of wisdom and encouragement.

Following the IEP Binder Building Workshop there will be a time for parents to network and connect with others who have similar celebrations and concerns.
