UO experts aid families coping with autism during pandemic

The transition to remote instruction has been hard for families, but children with disabilities face additional hurdles because of their need for specialized teaching and behavioral and emotional supports to develop their full potential. Most of those services have been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A panel of UO experts - Laura Lee McIntyre, Geovanna Rodriguez, and Wendy Machalicek - will discuss how they are providing parents with tools to manage interventions at home in “Autism and the Pandemic of School Absence: Equipping Families,” a Zoom webinar on Wednesday, July 8, at 6 p.m.
