This workshop will introduce Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and how it presents in preschool children. We will then examine the role of the Early Childhood Educator in supporting children with ASD in an early childhood education environment and examine specific strategies to support A) younger children with ASD in an early childhood education environment; and B) older children with ASD in an early childhood education environment. Time will be given at the end of the presentation for a question and answer period.
