Topic Summary: Autism In The Family – Coaching Strategies to Assist Families of Children with Autism
The challenges of autism can often make it next to impossible to keep the needs of the families of the children you serve in perspective. The whole family can be immobilized by unrelenting stress. This presentation provides insight and tips to help you coach immediate and extended family members of the children you serve.
Learn strategies that you can both utilize and pass along to parents and siblings of children with autism, including playing and interacting with the child who has been diagnosed; tips for meeting the needs of typically developing siblings; and tips for maintaining a good marriage.
