FAU CARD's Little Owls Early Intervention Initiative is a 3- day parent training for parents and family members of children ages 2-5 years old with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or that are in the process of seeking a diagnosis of ASD.
The goal of the training is to help prepare families to be active participants in a child’s positive developmental growth.
Some of the topics covered are:
- Promoting communication and social engagement
- Selecting therapies, advocacy and understanding benefits
- A special emphasis is placed on safety and the child with ASD
- Because parents play a central role in the life of a child, parent support and self-care are important themes of the training
The training takes place at the Karen Slattery Educational Research Center for Child Development on the FAU Boca campus.
The class will start at 9:00am and end at 4:00 pm on the following dates:
Friday Dec. 2, 2016
