-A A +A


The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos Community Education Department will host a workshop on Autism Spectrum Disorders: Implications for Post Secondary Transition from 6-9 p.m. March 13, on the UNM-LA campus. 

The cost for the workshop is $35, and will be led by Christine Hazard, Ph.D.

The workshop will outline the primary deficits seen in individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and address the implications of these for post secondary transition — whether into college or work. Practical suggestions will be provided for maximizing strengths and minimizing liabilities in social and learning styles.

Eva Artschwager, UNM-LA Community Education Director said, “We are offering this class to provide information for those concerned with autism spectrum disorder and planning a transition from high school into college or the work force.”

Dr. Hazard has been serving as a district psychologist with the Los Alamos Public Schools for the past 19 years and as team leader for the district’s ASD Resource Team for 10 years.
