“Start Where They Are” - Free Workshop Series for Parents of Young Children with Autism
This limited seating series will be led by a member of the Autism Society of NC clinical team and a parent of an individual with autism. We will emphasize finding the right starting point for your child as you address critical skills that lead to increased empowerment, independence, social connectedness, and health and safety. While not required, we encourage you to attend the full series if you are able. There will be many opportunities for group discussion and Q&A.

6-part series topics:
• May 19: Understanding core features and perspectives of individuals with ASD; identifying big goals, finding the right starting point, and steps to get there
• May 26: Start where they are: Building engagement and social connection through play and reinforcement
• June 2: Start where they are: Promoting self-advocacy and communication in young children
• June 9: Start where they are: Promoting success in daily routines such as dressing, toothbrushing, toileting, and mealtime behaviors.
• June 16: Start where they are: Heading off problem behaviors with positive support strategies
• June 23: Wrap up session: Identifying future directions for home implementation, connecting parents to additional resources and supports

*Throughout the series, trainers will emphasize the ways that strategies shared are responsive to the core features of autism. Strategies will illustrate how to use evidence-based practices within everyday activities and family routines.
