Milwaukee, WI, October 26, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Temple Grandin, Ph.D. -- chosen by Time magazine as their “hero” in the “100 Most Influential Persons in the World” (2010) -- is coming to speak on the autistic brain.
She contends people need to recognize and appreciate “the strengths of brains formed differently” rather than focusing on the autism diagnosis, its social deficits, or the behaviors some of those with autism may exhibit.
Dr. Grandin will be joined by Jed Baker, Ph.D., author of the best-selling The Social Skills Picture Book series, who will be focusing on the subject of managing anxiety and frustration in children, teens, and caregivers.
Dr. Baker’s high-profile appearances on numerous television shows include ABC World News, Nightline, Fox News, The CBS Early Show, and the Discovery Health Channel. He will focus on the subjects of preventing negative behaviors that are also detailed in his books No More Meltdowns: Positive Strategies for Managing and Preventing Out-of-Control Behavior; No More Victims: Protecting those with Autism from Cyber Bullying, Internet Predators & Scams, and Overcoming Anxiety in Children and Teens.
Beth Aune, OTR/L -- renowned for her practical solutions and strategies for teachers, parents, and caregivers in addressing challenging behaviors -- will also speak at the Dec. 7 event. She is the co-author of the gold award-winning book Behavior Solutions In & Beyond the Inclusive Classroom: See a Behavior? Look It Up!
As the owner-therapist of Desert Occupational Therapy for Kids, a pediatric outpatient clinic, she and her team of occupational therapists are dedicated to helping children achieve their highest potential in their daily lives.
Ms. Aune has subsequently written two other popular books, most recently Behavior Solutions for the Home & Community.
