The UW Autism Center offers groups for parents and family members of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Groups are led by our multi-disciplinary training team. Prior registration is required and space is limited!
Activities of Daily Living
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Autism and Mental Health
Infant Clinic Parent Coaching Group
Supporting Adolescents and Adults with Autism
In this small group format, parents will receive coaching and feedback from instructors while practicing strategies to support their child’s development. Parents will attend with their child with autism or children for whom there may be concerns about autism. They will receive information about tweaks they can make while playing or interaction with their child that can lead to increases in four main goal areas for very young children with autism.
In this coaching group:
– Parents will learn instructional strategies that they can incorporate into regular daily routines and play with their child.
– Parents will meet with other parents and gain support and opportunities to build community with other parents.
– Children will increase skills in four areas: focusing on faces, taking turns, requesting and social imitation.
We recommend that parents and children attend all 8 weeks of the coaching group, however participants can join mid-group if the group has already begun. Charges will apply only to those sessions you register to attend.
Who should attend: Parents AND their young child with autism (or concerns about ASD) 0-3 years of age.
Content level: Beginner
Cost: $50 per session
