Selkirk to launch Autism resource SPECTRUM in new year

December 15, 2017

Selkirk College has announced that it is launching SPECTRUM: Lifespan Autism Resources & Training in January. SPECTRUM is an online, innovative course that offers perspectives about Autism Spectrum Disorder across the lifespan, as well as providing an awareness and understanding of practical resources and support approaches. “There is a strong community need for basic information about autism and the impacts it has at all ages,” says Selkirk Education Assistant & Community Support Worker (EACSW) Program instructor Jane Green, adding that “information creates insight, acceptance and inclusion.” The program is reportedly useful for education assistants, teachers, early childhood educators, and community support members in particular, as well as general community members. Selkirk
