Understanding Autism

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the US with 1 in 54 children diagnosed on the spectrum. This training will talk about what autism is, some of the key features, what parents need to know, and what supports are available for families. This is designed as an interactive training for families to come with their questions and talk about their concerns as well learn valuable information about autism and see the joys and challenges of raising a child on the spectrum.

This class will be led by Mary Helen Richer, Executive Director of the Autism Society Greater Cincinnati. With a Masters of Arts in Communication and a Minor in Counseling from the University of North Dakota, Mary Helen has always had a passion in serving and working with those underserved in their communities. With nearly 8 years of experience working with individuals and families on the autism spectrum, she has developed a broad understanding of autism, its joys and challenges and the many wonderfully unique individuals who are proud to be on the autism spectrum.
