2020 Spring Next Steps Workshops

HANDS in Autism® Next Steps™ Workshop

The HANDS in Autism® Next Steps™ workshop is an interactive workshop that will provide stakeholders an opportunity, as a diverse group, to learn about and discuss general information about the autism spectrum disorder (ASD), adjusting to the diagnosis, and how to make appropriate treatment decisions and create support strategies. A comprehensive manual providing information on ASD, diagnosis, family considerations, resources and supports, treatment and intervention, rights and regulations, as well as practical strategies, is distributed to the registered workshop attendees (one per registered household).

Next Steps™ is primarily designed for primary caregivers who have a child that has recently been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. However, this workshop may also be beneficial for other caregivers, educational or therapy professionals, medical providers, and other adult family members.

Workshop Dates, Times, and Locations:
*Virtual Workshop: Wednesday, May 20, 2020; 3:30 - 5:30 PM; A community workshop hosted by HANDS in Autism® by the Central LCC Region. Registration and participation open to anyone--regardless of location.

* To comply with COVID-19 precautions of social distancing--yet still provide access to this useful information, these workshops will be provided in a virtual format through a Zoom meeting. Registered participants will have electronic access to the Next Steps Manual and will receive information and instructions for joining this virtual event prior to the scheduled workshop.
