Workshop: Tips for Serving People on the Autism Spectrum

Tips for Serving People on the Autism Spectrum with Judy Endow
September 10th, 1-3:30 pm
Avalon Hotel, 1009 West Park Ave, Chippewa Falls
Register by September 3rd here:
The population of people on the autism spectrum continues to rise. In the public sector, we encounter people on the spectrum, but sometimes don’t have the information or tools to feel equipped to serve them effectively
Join us for a workshop with Judy Endow, designed for people who work with the general public (librarians, social workers, teachers, professors, and other professionals). You’ll come away with a better understanding of autism and some concrete ideas about what you can do to provide more effective and compassionate service.
Judy Endow, MSW, is an author and nationally-sought-after speaker. Judy does workshops and presentations on a variety of autism-related issues, is part of the Wisconsin DPI Statewide Autism Training Team and a board member of both the Autism Society of America, Wisconsin Chapter and the Autism National Committee. Besides having autism herself, she is the parent of three now-grown sons, one of whom is on the autism spectrum.
Sponsored by the Indianhead Federated Library System, and funded in part by a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services
