Autism presentation Aug. 27 at The Waters of Minocqua

Scholl Community Impact Group & Blazing a New Trail Autism Support Group (501c3 non-profit organization) is hosting a presentation Wednesday, Aug. 27, on a different approach to communicating with persons with autism, with Char Brandl, author of the “See Us SMART.”

Brandl served as a special education teacher from 1966 through 2003, working primarily at the elementary school level with students who were given labels such as “cognitively disabled” (moderate/severe), “multi-handicapped” or autistic.  

In 1992, she learned about and started using Facilitated Communication. This method uses a laptop or tablet to communicate through symbols or typing in order for families to communicate.

She will talk about her experiences, give some background on the movement to teach typing as a means of communication and share some practical suggestions that might be helpful to those who have family members or students with similar challenges. 

The lecture will be held Wednesday, Aug. 27, 6:30-8 p.m., at The Waters of Minocqua, 8116 Hwy 51 S., Minocqua.

There is a $10 fee which is tax-deductible and payable at the door. 

RSVP to Kelly at 715-543-2287.
