I would like to invite you to our upcoming presentation, “AUTISM DIAGNOSIS – WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?”
A series of three presentations by Gino Lerario, who has more than 23 years’ experience in Early Intervention Services with a particular focus on ASD and complex developmental needs. Each presentation will be followed by Q & A session which will help parents/guardians to have a better understanding of Autism, Key Issues and Parenting Strategies. These sessions aim to provide information and support for parents of children and adolescents with ASD, or where there is a query of ASD.
Gino works for the HSE. He is the Early Intervention Educator with the North Tipperary Children’s Services. He is part of a multidisciplinary team which provides assessment and intervention for children with complex developmental needs. He has a Master’s Degree in Primary and Special Education from La Salle University in Philadelphia. He has experience with children with behavioural difficulties and has taught in an ASD Classroom, but the majority of his 23-year career has been in Early Intervention services. His recent work includes supporting families of children with ASD or a query of ASD and supporting preschools and schools to include children with ASD. He has keen interest in the development of play and interaction, particularly utilising the DIR/Floortime model.
