Chapel Hill TEACCH offers seminars for parents with a goal to ensure that all parents of children with a diagnosis of ASD have access to information that will help in better understanding autism as well as the behaviors and learning style that accompanies this disability. The focus of the seminars is understanding autism spectrum disorders, understanding the learning, social, communication and behavioral needs of individuals with ASD, and understanding your child’s individuality and how to use this information to problem solve and advocate for them. These seminars are designed for parents of newly diagnosed individuals, but the information shared is useful to all parents, regardless of a child’s age, development or length of time since diagnosis. Seminars are a combination of lecture, discussion and time for individual questions. Call 919-966-5156 for more information.
The two-hour seminars are offered weekly for two weeks.
