Behavior Strategies that Work

For this series of sessions, participants will learn strategies for managing the spectrum of behaviors observed in children with autism. The sessions are appropriate for educators and caregivers of children with ASD. Many of the strategies that will be addressed are appropriate for individuals of all ages, but the sessions focus on children between the ages of 4 and 12 years. While it is most beneficial if you can attend each of the 8 sessions, it is not required.
