ASRC workshops & trainings provide a way to create an intensive educational experience in a short amount of time, when the time for a more comprehensive effort may not be available. Our workshops can introduce a new concept, allowing participants to investigate it further on their own, or can demonstrate and encourage the practice of actual methods.
ASRC workshops are usually short in length, and although they may last anywhere from 45 minutes to two full days, these educational programs are designed to teach or introduce to participants practical skills, techniques, or ideas which they can use in their daily lives.
Most ASRC workshops have several features in common:
- They’re generally small, usually getting anywhere from 6 to 25 participants, which offers members the chance to get more personal attention and to be heard.
- They’re often designed for people who are involved with ASD on a personal or professional level.
- They’re conducted by people with real experience regarding the subjects under discussion, like parents of children with ASD, professionals in the files, and disability rights advocates.
- They often participate in influencing the direction of the workshop, and also in practicing the techniques, skills, etc. that are under discussion.
- They’re informal; which allows participants to have good discussions about many important topics.
