Children, adolescents, and adults with ASD have amazing potential! Despite deficits in language, social, and recreation skills, children have the ability to learn to fully communicate and acquire the necessary social skills to have meaningful friendships. Dr. Leaf will share the strategies that Autism Partnership has developed over decades – strategies that have helped thousands reach their potential.

Facts and Fiction
There is a great deal of misinformation and confusion regarding issues such as etiology, prognosis, and treatment options. In order to effectively navigate the maze of ASD, it is essential to critically analyze the issues that parents and professionals confront on a daily basis, so as to develop the most effective intervention strategies.
People with ASD have tremendous potential. Unfortunately, some expectations for students with ASD have historically been far too low. This has greatly affected how children are taught. Lower expectations have influenced decisions on educational strategies as well as curriculum. Effective treatment and programing efforts can help people reach their potential and most importantly, maximize their quality of lives.
