Structured TEACCHing

These sessions are available to parents of children with autism ages 3 through adulthood (and under 3 who are not able to be served by TEACCH for Toddlers Program). They provide an opportunity for parents to learn ways of teaching their child at home and to help deal with behavior problems, self-help and other skills including communication and social skills.

Individualized Parent TEACCHing Sessions are designed to facilitate a collaboration/partnership between TEACCH staff and parents. A key to this collaboration is our underlying philosophy that parents know their child best and that TEACCH can provide information, strategies, and support to address the needs of their child. Individual parent TEACCHing sessions are available to parents of individuals with autism of all ages.

Sessions are time-limited and scheduled once a week. The number of sessions varies depending on the individual’s needs. During the sessions, a therapist works directly with the child to model suggested strategies and then works with the parent to implement these strategies that address the concerns the parent may have.
