Autism – Strategies for Success
Presenter: Malgosia Tomanik
Autism Spectrum Disorder affects communication, social interaction, reasoning, and behaviour. It is usually evident before a child turns three years old. It is estimated that 1 in 51 children ages 6 to 18 in British Columbia have autism. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a framework for supporting a child with this neurobiological disorder in a childcare setting. Also, we will explore the characteristics of autism, early diagnosis, and early intervention.
Malgosia Tomanik, M.Ed., is a Family Consultant who specializes in supporting children preschool to high school age and their “big people” in a variety of environments, including homes, schools, and child care settings. Malgosia is experienced in addressing concerns associated with the daily challenges of caring for a child who requires support, including helping to make sense of difficult behaviour and supporting the big people for each child in finding a way through.
Malgosia also works as a Key Worker with the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre. She provides support to caregivers raising children and youth who are living with FASD, from birth to 18 years of age.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
