Craig McCullough’s work with children with autism has provided much anecdotal evidence to support the “Intense World Theory” – which holds that autism results from a supercharged brain that makes the world painfully intense.
Craig’s insights come from his experience as a counselor and counselor educator in various settings and from his work in the trenches with a daughter diagnosed with Asperger’s. He will present a June 28th pre-conference session entitled “Autism & Trauma Connections and Interactions – What Educators Need to Understand” at the Wired Differently Conference in Las Vegas. He will also present additional sessions during the main conference.
The Wired Differently Conference is coming to Las Vegas! Now in its 4th year, this information-packed event showcases a wide array of critical insights and best practices will be shared for reaching and teaching students diagnosed with, or who could be diagnosed with, emotional/behavioral challenges –
especially in inclusive settings.
