Redefining 'High Functioning Autism': Creating a path to success.

How do you support individuals on the Autism Spectrum as they move from adolescence to adulthood.

Join Janis Krempa as she explores the term "High Functioning Autism"- what it means, what it implies, and how it came to be. Asking the right questions and having challenging conversations are the first steps in redefining "HFA" and how BCBAs can truly put "person first" into best practice. This course will discuss the multiple facets of an autism diagnosis in lively dialogues with clinicians, parents, teachers, and program administrators. Learn just how much "high-functioning autism" has played a central role in the autism conversation.

Janis Krempa

BCBA

Janis Krempa became a BCBA in 2003. Janis has practiced ABA in many settings, including school, home, and community-based consultation for kids and adults on the autism spectrum and other developmental disorders. Her experiences with early intervention through young adulthood have informed her perspective- and continues to strive to "ask the right questions" to provide top-quality teaching, support, and collaboration. She co-authored “Social Sills Solutions: A Hans-On Manual for Teaching Social Skills to Children with Autism” which has become a touchstone resource in teaching social skills to children with autism. Janis is currently working on 2023 updates to the SSS book including translations to Spanish, French and Portuguese. She is also working on short books for parents new to the diagnosis of ASD and also a BCBA Guide to Supervision. Janis teaches CEU professional development courses in the US & France. She is the owner of Building Steps Forward, a practice that focuses on building social skills, communication skills, self-advocacy and executive function support to young adults on the autism spectrum. Janis is grateful to continue the partnership with Cite Pro and the opportunity to connect with its very smart and thoughtful clinicians!
