Educators. Social Workers. Law Enforcement. Physicians and medical personnel.
Whether or not they are aware of it, professionals who work with the public work with people on the autism spectrum.
The Hench Autism Studies Program is committed to training professionals across a range of fields to better understand and meet the needs of ASD individuals.
Each year the Hench Program hosts speakers and a symposium to foster awareness and train professionals in best practices for the ASD population, often offering certification for those who complete the training.
Past symposia have focused on:
- The TEACCH Autism Program from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine
- John Elder Robison
- Social Workers
- Stephen Shore and Judy Endow
- Law Enforcement
Currently, the Hench Program is organizing to the 2011 symposium to work with physicians and medical personnel.
Engaged and caring professionals understand that students, cases, and patients are people first and foremost, and that serving people begins with understanding and appreciating them all in their diversity, ASD included.
The Hench Program helps make that happen.
