Special education staff attend autism awareness training


The Center for Disease Control reports that about 1 in 59 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder. The Crook County School District strives to better serve our students with autism. District staff members who work with special education students attended an autism awareness training last Wednesday at CCHS. Occupational Therapist Katie-Ann Kailey of High Desert Education Service District presented “Sensory Processing and Our Students (and Ourselves)!” She talked about sensory processing, the seven senses, sensory processing model, case studies and problem solving. Other speakers included a mother of an autistic child and an assistive technology specialist. They covered topics such as defining autism and de-escalation strategies. Pictured is Katie-Ann Kailey.
