From Early Childhood to High School & Beyond: Educating Students with ASD

For the first time, this year’s annual workshop includes all ages—from toddlers, preschool and pre- K, to elementary, middle, and high school students to college students. We will begin our workshop with a keynote speech from one of the world’s leading experts in early identification of autism and then head into concurrent sessions that are relevant to daily classroom teachers and staff. This annual workshop not only provides the latest research in ASD but also targets practical and specific teaching tools to take into your classroom. 

Our main speaker will be Ami Klin, Ph.D., professor and the Chief of Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Emory University’s School of Medicine and a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar at Emory University. He is also the director of the Marcus Autism Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and the former director of Yale University’s Autism program. Dr. Klin’s main research focuses on the social aspects of both the mind and brain and developmental aspects of autism throughout one’s life. He has co-edited several textbooks including Asperger Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorders in Infants and Toddlers (Guilford Press) and Handbook of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Third Edition (Wiley), and he has also co-edited several issues of professional journals on autism.
