BLACKWOOD – The Center for Civic Leadership and Responsibility will hold the last special event in a series supporting autism awareness on Nov. 10. The presentation, which will take place at 6:30 p.m. in Civic Hall in the Connector Building on the Blackwood campus of Camden County College, will focus on how to better understand the needs of autistic children.
After events on the previous four Mondays, the series will conclude with explanations on how to accommodate children with learning difficulties including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy and other learning disabilities. The Nov. 10 event, called “ADHD, epilepsy, learning disabilities, oh my,” will be led by Dr. Sarah Woldoff of the Center for Neurological and Neurodevelopmental Health. Woldoff will explain to attendees the techniques in assisting children with learning disabilities in the classroom.
Woldoff previously conducted a workshop at CCC about how to survive bullying.
“This presentation highlights methods appropriate and doable for a classroom environment and focuses on helping teachers’ problem solve methods that will work for their classroom structure,” according to the brochure for the event. However, the offerings of the Center for Civic Leadership and Responsibility are open to all.
