Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development.

On Tuesday, July 15th and Thursday, July 17th, a two session class on Autism will be offered at Casper College. The class will meet from 6 to 7:30 pm each night.

The class, taught by Connie Bell-Mayers, is designed to “allow students to follow my journey into the world of autism,” she said. “I will provide parents, educators, family, friends, and community members with a unique perspective on autism spectrum disorder (ASD),” said Bell-Mayers, who noted that those attending will “gain awareness and understanding that they can use in parenting, teaching, or providing care for a child with an ASD.”

The cost of the class is $17 per person. To register or for more information, contact Laura Burnett, Casper College community education specialist, at 307-268-3399 or
