As the 2014-15 School year comes to a close, we want to congratulate our teachers, students and families for their successful completion! It is our sincere hope that you enjoy the opportunity to spend some time together this summer. As always, if your child’s school placement information changes, please let us know so that we can better serve you in the coming months. We work diligently to make sure that our consultants are available to our client’s schools for support year round.
The 2015 Autism Summer Institute is just around the corner. The dates are June 8, 9, & 10, 2015. This year we are pleased to provide training on brain plasticity and development, evidenced based approaches to improving IEP outcomes, understanding and providing supports for self-regulation, and learning how to build partnerships using innovative technologies as a bridge for researched-based practices for toddlers with Autism and Communication Disorders. This is a power packed three days of learning! It is not too late to register!
Additionally, we have a number of CARD sponsored events coming up in June. The PEERS Training for Professionals, the Parent Empowerment series and the Parent Stress Intervention Program (which is now full, but we hope to offer more opportunities soon!)
Save the Date for the brand new Northwest Florida Summer Autism Institute presented by: FSU CARD in conjunction with Santa Rosa County School District, Escambia County School District and Autism Pensacola on August 3-5. Registration information coming soon.
We would also like to remind all parents of young CARD clients that documentation of diagnosis of ASD should be provided to us by age six. If your child is nearing age six or has recently turned six, please send documentation of your child’s diagnosis. This may include a formal assessment report or the cover page of your child’s IEP.
We look forward to seeing you in the coming months.
