2015-2016 Workshop Series made possible by NYC Council Autism Initiative Funding
We at Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices, School and Center for Children with Autism would like to share our findings about how children on the autism spectrum learn to communicate, socialize and succeed while engaging in daily routine activities and interacting with others.
At SK-HOV we provide comprehensive, research-based educational practices and related therapeutic services to maximize the learning and participation of children (aged 3 to 11 years) with various developmental and neurological disorders.
Our education and training program is designed to inform and enhance the knowledge of participants about autism, related services and behavior analytic techniques used to effectively teach personal, social, and academic skills.
This workshop series was designed in response to parents, teachers, therapists and others who requested to learn how to improve the lives of children with autism spectrum disorders. We encourage teachers, parents and all those interested in learning about effective treatment interventions to attend.
Sessions will be led by SK-HOV’s Educational Team – Gili Rechany, MA, SBL, BCBA, Educational Director, Elizabeth Diviney, PhD, BCBA, Behavior Consultant, Chani Katz, MA, BCBA, IEP Coordinator, and Dr. Stephen Shore, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Special Education, Adelphi University.
