Parent & Caregiver Training

Our Parent & Caregiver Training focuses on enhancing skills and techniques that can improve functional communication and decrease problem behaviors in individuals with autism and similar disorders. This training also provides valuable information, tips and techniques that can help parents and others better navigate the challenges that come with being a parent or caregiver of a child with special needs.

Offered in an individual or group setting in one of our behavioral health treatment centers or via telehealth, or offered individually to parents and caregivers in our center or at home, this training provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn and practice effective methods that can be used outside of sessions and outside a clinical setting. Bringing parents together as a group creates a support system and can help parents connect with others facing similar challenges.

Parent & Caregiver Training services are also available under a self-pay arrangement where parents, caregivers or others pay for services directly.

There is no greater joy than watching your baby develop as a little person, hearing them laugh and babble, and seeing them explore their surroundings. Some babies take a little longer than others to achieve expected milestones, from crawling to feeding themselves, and that’s not necessarily a problem; children develop at their own pace. But there are specific behaviors that can be indicative of a developmental disability such as autism.
