Networks for Training and Development, Inc.Presents Demystifying Autism with William Stillman
This two-day workshop is designed to guide participants toward a greater understanding and a heightened awareness of those who have an autism spectrum experience -- from a purely non-clinical, anecdotal perspective based upon what people are telling us about their experience.
Day One discussion lays the foundation of best practice approaches by presenting an overview of our collective differences and similarities in communication, social interaction, sensory, learning, and movement.
Day Two provides participants with an opportunity to actively apply the philosophies shared the previous day to several scenarios based upon actual individuals and situations.
Dates: May 12 & 13, 2014
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

William Stillman is the award-winning author of 10 autism and related books including Demystifying the Autistic Experience, The Autism Answer Book, The Everything Parent's Guide to Children with Asperger's Syndrome, The Soul of Autism, and his groundbreaking work, Autism and the God Connection.
His Bachelor's degree is in Education, and he has worked to support people with different ways of being since 1987.
As an adult with Asperger's Syndrome, a mild "cousin" of autism, his message of reverence and respect has touched thousands nationally through his acclaimed autism workshops and private consultations. He has served on a number of autism advisory boards including AUTCOM (the Autism National Committee).
In his work to support those who love and care for individuals on the autism spectrum, William Stillman sets a tone for our collective understanding of the autistic experience in ways that are unprecedented. Autism should not be defined as an "affliction endured by sufferers," but as a truly unique and individual experience to be respected and appreciated by all. In so doing, he highlights the exquisite sensitivities of our most valuable, wise and loving "teachers." His web site is www.williamstillman.com
