"Understanding Autism" for Woonsocket, Bristol, Warren, and Central Providence 

Thanks to a preschool development grant from the Woonsocket, Bristol, and Central Providence Health Equity Zones, The Autism Project is proud to offer the "Understanding Autism" workshop. You are eligible to take this FREE training if you are a parent or professional supporting a child from birth-5 years old in the following zip codes: 02908, 02909, 02895, 02885, 02809. 

We are specifically targeting these populations within the Bristol/Warren, Woonsocket, and Central Providence areas in order to educate, identify, and assess potential developmental delays. Our goal is to provide professionals with the tools to have difficult conversations with families, and we want to provide parents with the tools to have difficult conversations with their child's pediatrician. By increasing screenings, diagnoses, and placement for appropriate care, we may be able to reduce disparities for underserved children who are at risk of, or who may already have, an autism diagnosis. After all, we believe knowledge is power and education is intervention, especially when raising a child with autism or developmental delays.

November 5th, 2021/5:30-7:30PM, EST: "Understanding Autism": This training allows participants to gain a better understanding of how to support and engage with individuals with ASD, DD, and other executive functioning challenges at home and in the community. Participants will learn: characteristics of ASD, identifying underlying skills deficits, strategies to support people during a meltdown, how to identify and respond according to a patient's brain state, and an awareness of one’s own emotional triggers and the impact those triggers have on a response to a situation.
