Siskin Children’s Institute is happy to provide free workshops for parents of young children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in partnership with the Chattanooga Autism Center and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Treatment & Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) program this fall.
The three-hour informative workshops provide insight and strategies for parents of young children with an Autism Spectrum Disorders. These strategies are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and focus on skills that can be used not only at home, but in schools and the community.
Topics for this fall include addressing challenging behavior, developing successful sleep habits and teaching basic communication skills. Workshops will be held one Saturday of every month with childcare and lunch included. To RSVP or find more information on these free sessions, visit siskin.org/workshops.
“We are so grateful to be able to provide these free parent workshops for families caring for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, “ says Deidra Love, workshop facilitator. “We know that building the skill sets of parents will have long-term benefits for their children.”
"Thanks to the Rotary Club of Chattanooga for generously supporting this parent education series this year," official said.
