Soaring Heights to hold autism presentation

The third installment of an autism presentation will be held Tuesday night.

It’s the last in a series of education presentations through Soaring Heights School, in partnership with the schools behavioral consultant Melissa Hunter.

Hunter will discuss toilet training and structure with an emphasis on strategies to help parents manage holiday chaos.

The other seminars included information on autism basics, living with autism and dealing with change.

“We have been listening to parents and realize that they also need assistance in appropriately dealing with children with autism,” Program Director John Dibert said. “It is not just what we do at our school, but general and specific skills that help with in-home, and outside community functions.”
