Information About the Courses:

This course helps parents to address behaviors through understanding and intervening before they are able to see real change from the child. In this course, parents will learn different strategies to use while discovering  new ways to address and recognize the different stages of those behaviors. There are great tips and resources provided to help parents identify certain triggers that contribute toward the behavior and also be able to learn the importance of positive reinforcement that can display positive behaviors from the child. Behaviors can be challenging for most parents and we hope that this presentation meets your expectations. 

The Autism 101 course was created to help parents learn and understand the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) among individuals. The goals of this presentation are to identity characteristics of ASD and to learn basic strategies that address those traits in many different settings. Challenges with ASD vary drastically and there is no individual on the spectrum that functions the same. Find out about autism from symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and more. Are you ready to learn? Let’s Go!!!

It is so important for parents to know about the different resources available for their sons and daughters. Many times, parents get frustrated and become hopeless due to a lack of services offered in the area or no knowledge of those services at all. The purpose of this presentation is to provide you with resources that will benefit your family needs. We hope that you will find the information helpful and that you will be able to use these resources in the future. Also, we want to provide you with a resource guide to help you on your continued road toward success. Go to specialneedsexpobg.org for even more resources at your fingertips!!!
