Supporting Families with their Child’s Recent Autism Diagnosis
Families of children with a new or recent Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis often require a unique clinical skill set. This talk will cover several aspects of parent training, specifically as it relates to clients that fall in the early intervention age range (0-3). The talk will include developing an age-appropriate parent training model, setting goals, generalization and maintenance, coordination of care, navigating challenges with the family, and strategies for compassionate care when working with families of newly diagnosed children.
Following this CE event, from 1-1:30, we will be having an informational session about joining our Early Intervention Team in Massachusetts. We will share all of the exciting and rewarding aspects of being a BCBA at Key Autism Services in our Early Intervention program. In addition, we will also share the benefits and perks of working at Key Autism Services. We will have opportunities to win raffle prizes, gift cards and more!
