1 Day Parent Hands-on Workshop:
Establishing Appropriate Readiness Skills for Children with ASD

Parent education and skills training are integral parts of Autism Partnership’s model of service and we believe that parent involvement and ability to help their child are essential for obtaining the best long-term outcome for a child.

On Saturday, June 25, AP will be conducting a hands-on practical workshop for parents with children with ASD.
