Skill Building Workshop

Event Details

Parent Training Workshops are available to parents/caregivers of Geneva Centre clients ages 0-18. Parent Training Workshops provide an interactive space to learn new skills and strategies to support your child/youth at home and in the community.

Are you looking to increase your child’s/teen’s skill and motivation to perform tasks independently? Do you want to learn a variety of teaching methods that are proven to be effective for individuals on the autism spectrum? This workshop will address how to teach new socially significant skills to children/ teens, including self-care, housework, toleration, academic task, and other common daily living skills. As a part of this workshop, we will discuss assessing your child’s/ teen’s current skill-level, breaking tasks down into manageable steps for teaching, how to best remove yourself from the teaching process, using schedules, self-monitoring and behaviour contracts, and strategies to motivate your child/teen.
