Promoting Social Inclusion of People with Autism and other Disabilities in Education

 A free workshop series for parents, teachers, therapists, and others working with children on the autism spectrum was presented by Dr. Stephen Shore, an Assistant Professor to the Department of Special Education, at Adelphi University.

As an introduction Dr. Joshua Weinstein Founder and CEO of ICare4Autism presented Shema Kolainu’s sister school Tishma in Jerusalem Israel. He presented a video of the school and its various activities.

He also spoke about Icare4autism and its vision of creating the Global Autism Center on Mt. Scopus in Israel, dedicated to catalyzing breakthrough innovation in autism research and treatment.

Dr. Shore presented the development and use of educational accommodations as extensions of good teaching practices. Attendees were able to learn ways to implement and find practical solutions for including children with autism and other special needs into the regular education experience.

During the workshop Dr. Shore also shared a touching description of his own personal struggles and how he was successful in his life even with autism.

This workshop was held at our Brooklyn location and attendees were given a certificate of completion upon request.
