What are physiological, psychological and developmental factors in Autistic behavior?

Autism is becoming increasingly prevalent in the youth of America.  It is an issue that often leaves parents bewildered, frustrated, discouraged and even frightened.  The children who suffer from it also experience strong emotions and confusing behaviors.  New brain research is beginning to provide some hopeful answers and therapeutic options which can alleviate some of the symptoms. 

Autism Workshop
S*CCEEDS registered, ADE approvedSaturday September 12th for Parents and Professionals 
Sponsored by Arizona Teacher’s Professional Development and the East Valley Aspergers Asc

I have met numerous homeschooling families over the years who have one or more children diagnosed with various forms of Autism, which is often at least part of the reason they have turned to home education.  Couple the benefits of the home environment and great teacher-student ratios with some of the techniques you will learn from Craig’s workshop, and you will have a winning combination for your student. 

 This 3 hour workshop will teach about the symptoms of and treatments for Autism/Aspergers/PDD. It will cover physiological, psychological and developmental factors in Autistic behavior. Also covered will be some of the predispositions, causes and triggers of Autism.
