Evidence-based Strategies to facilitate friendships and learning
April is Autism awareness month and to raise awareness we are excited to have Hatch Expert Melissa Burkhardt join us for this enlightening webinar, Autism and Friendships: Peer Mediated Instruction and Intervention. Peer Mediated Instruction and Intervention (PM-II) is an evidence-based practice to promote interactions between typically developing peers and students with autism spectrum disorder that are positive and natural in quality.
Melissa specializes in private therapy providing very early intervention for children with autism and parental coaching to achieve best outcomes in a child's life. She shares her extensive knowledge about autism through public speaking, coaching, program development, and preparing specialized presentations for individuals, groups, and corporations.
