Good afternoon families,
As information comes in that we feel would be beneficial to families through these unusual times, we at Next Steps Behavioral Centers would like to share that information with you. Today, we received an email from UVA Supporting Transformative Autism Research (STAR) about a Virtual Live Event happening on Thursday, March 26th from 3:00 PM-3:45 PM. Below is information about who STAR is and their mission, as well as information on the event itself.
“The mission of the UVA Supporting Transformative Autism Research (STAR) initiative is to improve the lives of individuals with autism and their families through research, education, and outreach. STAR brings together researchers, community partners, individuals with autism and their families to leverage strengths and address challenges. Our ultimate goal is to empower individuals with autism, their families and their communities to achieve positive outcomes and quality of life.”
The interactive webinar, hosted by Rose Nevill, PhD, BCBA, will be held on Thursday, March 26th at 3:00 PM – 3:45 PM. Dr. Nevill will provide some quick tips and tricks for managing challenging behavior while at home with your family member on the spectrum. It will be followed by a discussion that will provide the opportunity for you to ask questions, connect with other parents, and share your ideas.
Registration is encouraged but not required. After you register, you will receive a reminder and can download an appointment for your calendar.
