With permission from the Mt. Diablo school district’s Community Advisory Committee blog, I am reposting information about an Asperger’s presentation tonight at Valle Verde Elementary:

“April-Autism Awareness Month Event at Valle Verde

As part of Autism Awareness Month, Valle Verde will be hosting a special presentation on Thursday, April 26 at 6:30pm in the Multi-Use Room. Dr. Kathryn Stewart, a clinical psychologist and author based in Walnut Creek, will share information on students with Asperger’s Disorder, its effect on social and academic functioning, and implications for intervention. Dr. Stewart, founder of the Orion Academy in Moraga, published a book in 2002 entitled Helping Children with NLD or Asperger’s Syndrome: A Parent’s Guide and is an adjunct professor at The Wright Institute in Berkley. All interested parties are welcome to attend.”

The school is at 3275 Peachwillow Lane in Walnut Creek.

Do you believe the district provides adequate services for students with Asperger’s Disorder?

    It was a great presentation…don’t have a child on the spectrum but gave me a lot of insight. Thanks Valle Verde!

    I agree. It was a very interesting presentation and a good turnout.
    Afterwards, teacher Ellen Terminello told me that several people came up to her and said they learned new information they hadn’t known before.
    I am planning to write and blog more about this soon.
