RSVP: Workshop is complimentary – Suggested donation $7.00 for light luncheon offering. Register early, enrollment is limited to ensure a high degree of interaction.
This offering will especially benefit parents of children just recently diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as well as those who have been traveling the journey for some time. Larry Davis will share his experienced approach for guiding interactions with children on the spectrum, one that allows their light to shine.
Mr. Davis will explore ways to incorporate an outlook that embraces the bounty of autism – one that focuses on talents rather than the more-often attended perceived deficiencies.
Following targeted information sharing, Mr. Davis will respond to topic-related questions raised by parents to assist them with their individual journeys and guide them to valuable resources which may help along the way.
Participants will learn about findings on amygdala research, which indicate that the brains of persons with ASDs work harder during social interactions than the brains of persons without ASDs.
Parents will also become familiar with tools for addressing emotional wellness and sensory coherence.
“Larry possesses unique knowledge and experience which makes him an invaluable asset. I am always glad to see him supporting families because he is truly partnering with everyone at the table.”
–Dr. Vanessa Tucker, Education Specialist, University of Washington
