ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
The Center for Autism Research at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia invites you to: Workshop for Parents/ Caregivers Supporting Young Children Newly Diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
This workshop is geared towards parents/caregivers of toddlers through elementary school-aged children who have recently been diagnosed with ASD. Topics will include an overview of ASD, available therapies and treatments, how to decide what interventions to pursue, and tips for accessing community supports and resources.
Presenters will include experts in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, social work and psychology. There will be an opportunity for question and answer dialogue with these presenters. Participants will also engage in a discussion with a panel of parents who have made the next steps with their children.
Please reach out with any questions.
This workshop will be offered free of charge, but you must register in advance, as space is limited.
A few days prior to the workshop, you will receive an email with a private link with instructions for joining as a virtual participant, along with a packet of materials for the workshop.
Online participation is limited to 100 registrants.
