The Abilis spring speaker series for families with special needs in Fairfield  and Westchester Counties will feature a talk by Jillian Aili, M.Ed, and Meaghan Nagurney, M.Ed, BCBA.

The title of their talk is The Visual Learner: Using Visuals to Help Children with Autism Cope with Changes.

The talk is scheduled for Tuesday, March 21, from 9:00 am to 10:00 am at Abilis, 1150 Summer St in Stamford.

There are many good reasons to use visuals with children with autism who struggle with changes and communication.

These include helping to cope with tantrums to increasing communication skills with peers and family.

All are welcome to come and learn about how to use these visuals to help cope with the upcoming changes in routines that may occur with the spring holidays.

Participants will learn how to individualize these strategies after this speaker event. Refreshments will be provided.

Abilis is a non-profit organization that provides services and supports for individuals with special needs and their families.

The Abilis speaker series is available free-of- charge to parents, caregivers, grandparents, and educators who are caring for or working with children.

Seats are limited and registration is required. Registration can be made through Abilis’ website at abilis.us/calendar. For questions, please contact Karen Feder feder@abilis.us.
