How To Help My Kid Make Progress

Please join us for How To Help My Kid Make Progress as we continue with our new video series, Conversations About Autism, which replaced our Autism 200 lectures. 

Conversations About Autism is a series of 60-minute live-streamed sessions created for providers and caregivers of children with autism who wish to better understand the autism spectrum disorder. In this session we will have a conversation about what parents can do to support their child’s development with a local autism expert, a parent with a child with autism as well as a non-speaking adult with autism. I hope you can join us and be a part of that conversation.
