Join AAPC on April 4, 2014 at the Olathe, Kansas Hilton Garden Inn for a special workshop by world-renowned autism researcher and co-director of the Education Center in Belgium, Dr. Peter Vermeulen.
Dr. Vermeulen’s insights regarding context blindness deliver a fresh perspective on how individuals with an ASD perceive and respond to their environment. Using examples from his clinical practice, Dr. Vermeulen shares his theory of how context blindness directly impacts an individual’s cognitive abilities, thus impacting communication, social cognition, and behavior.

Major Topics for This All-Day Workshop:

  •     Why Autism Is Like an Iceberg and Why a Rabbit Can Also Be a Duck
  •     Why We Don’t Need Faces to Recognize Emotions and Why Some People Put a Parrot on Their Head
  •     Why People Never Say What They Mean, Why You Never Know When “Later” Is, and Why Even Pictures Can Be Confusing
  •     Why Pushing the Context Button Is the Cornerstone of Autism-Friendly Behavior and Support
