The  Center for Autism Research (CAR) is a collaborative research center between The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. CAR's primary mission is to understand the causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and develop effective treatments through research with infants through adults. Families who participate receive comprehensive assessment reports and are paid for their time and some travel expenses. CAR is also committed to serving the needs of families living with ASD through education and guidance. The new CAR Autism Roadmap seeks to help families answer questions about life with autism, whether they are new to the diagnosis or have lived with it for years, as well as connect them with resources in their communities via the CAR Resource Directory.

The Center for Autism Research at

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia invites you to

Virtual Next Steps for Families Workshop

A Workshop for Parents/ Caregivers Supporting Young Children Newly Diagnosed
with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD
)

This workshop is geared towards parents/caregivers of toddlers through elementary school-aged children who have recently been diagnosed with ASD. Topics will include an overview of ASD, available therapies and treatments, how to decide what interventions to pursue, and tips for accessing community supports and resources.

Presenters will include experts in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, social work and psychology. There will be an opportunity for question and answer dialogue with these presenters.  Participants will also engage in a discussion with a panel of parents who have made the next steps with their children.

Please reach out with any questions.

This workshop will be offered free of charge, but you must register in advance, as space is limited.

A few days prior to the workshop, you will receive an email with a private link with instructions for joining as a virtual participant, along with a packet of materials for the workshop.

Online participation is limited to 100 registrants.
