Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton would like to invite you to join us for Part 2 of our Annual Conference Mini-Series on January 22 & 23, 2021. We are going virtual and taking advantage of this opportunity to bring some amazing speakers to you through distance technology.

Our theme this year is “Re-thinking What We Know.” The pandemic has challenged us to think in new and different ways and we will be exploring that topic with our speakers. Speakers include Dr. Jonathan Weiss, Alfie Kohn, Ros Blackburn, Dr. Ami Klin, Dr. David Nicholas, and Michael John Carley.

EARLY SOCIAL INTERACTIONS PROGRAM

Good communication is more than learning how to talk. Communication also includes interacting, noticing and engaging with those around them, and “hanging in” or persisting when faced with challenges or change. We call this “active engagement”. Research shows that young children with autism who have at least 25 hours of active engagement time a week do better in kindergarten than those who don’t.

Project EPIC – Enhancing participation in Community

EPIC is a program designed to provide both segregated and inclusive opportunities for children and youth to engage in physical activity, socialization, and recreation.

EPIC is inclusive of a variety of activities that are designed to meet the child where they are at in terms of their ability to engage. This helps provides children and youth diagnosed with autism with an increased opportunity to participate in physical activity and peer interaction according to their abilities and preferences.
