This class is being offered to parents, family members and caregivers who are involved in the care of a child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Our hope is to further educate and provide assistance to the community regarding daily supports and modifications that may reduce difficulties with transitioning, communication and sensory disorders. The opportunity to ask questions in an open discussion and group setting will be provided at the conclusion of the presentation. This course will be offered in Spanish.
