Free Autism Workshop

Free Autism Workshop Camden County College aims to help parents and teachers understand autism better with a free workshop on its Blackwood Campus.

According to the Autism Society of America, autism is the fastest-growing pervasive development disorder (PDD). Through the workshop, the college hopes to generate awareness while assisting parents and teachers in providing an environment in which individuals with autism can flourish.

• “Adolescents and Adults with Autism” at 7 p.m. March 31 in the auditorium of the Danch CIM Center. Consultant Peter Gerhardt, a past president of the Organization for Autism Research’s Scientific Council, co-founded a social skills and support service for adults who have high-functioning autism or Asperger syndrome. He will discuss the challenges involved when a person with autism transitions into adulthood.

CCC has been designated as an official New Jersey Professional Development Provider as well as an official Pennsylvania Department of Education Act 48 Professional Provider. As a result, state-certified teachers can earn three hours of approved professional development for attending each of the sessions.

Although the workshop is free and open to the public, attendees must register to participate. To register or for additional information, contact the Division of School & Community Academic Programs by telephone at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4256, or via e-mail at tempscap2@camdencc.edu.
