Event Details

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.
