Presented by Elizabeth Deutsch, MS, CC-SLP

This program is appropriate for parents, teachers and paraprofessionals (6 contact hours available).


This 4-week language-based educational program supports parents and paraprofessionals who work with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders aged 3-6 years.

Topics to be discussed at length include social skills, play skills, sensory integration as it relates to language development, and executive functioning. Successful strategies used to support language and communication at varying levels will be presented.

Parents will create a "make and take" project to support their child’s current level of development as related to the topics discussed. As part of each workshop, parents will also be given a binder containing key articles and materials to bring home.
