Often, a diagnosis of autism can come as a shock, and can be an overwhelming experience for all involved.

“Helping Children on the Autism Spectrum” will give a fundamental understanding of the who, what, where, why, and how of autism by:

-Exploring the diagnosis, characteristics, and global statistics of autism; -Reframing problem behaviors by taking an attachment and person-centered perspective;

-Surveying interventions available (including evidence-based, emerging, and alternative practices)

-Giving practical tools and strategies so parents, caregivers, and teachers can work collaboratively to respond to the unique needs of children with autism.


  1. Understand the diagnosis and characteristics of ASD.
  2. Develop a thorough understanding of why symptoms occur.
  3. Develop practical tools and strategies to help children with ASD.
