Presenter Bio: Donna Graham
Donna began her career in Early Childhood Education and quickly focused on supporting those children with additional challenges. Her focus
became fine-tuned within the field of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Experience & education has led Donna to opportunities of front line support positions within the YRDSB and the community. Her portfolio then expanded to include individual and group consultation, training & presentations working with the Geneva Centre for Autism and Kerry’s Place Autism Services.
Donna now offers her services through a private consultation business, “A Sensible Difference”.

For Families with children under the age of 8
- who have been recently diagnosed with ASD
- who are awaiting a possible ASD diagnosis
- where red flags for Autism have been identified
Designed to help participants increase their understanding of an autism spectrum disorder and how the diagnostic criteria may present in their child. Participants will become more familiar with those key areas of difficulty when there is a diagnosis of ASD as presented in the DSM-V.
Discussion will include how these challenges may in turn affect behaviours and an overview of some of the common strategies that support an individual with a diagnosis.
