A Parent's Guide to Autism

A Parent's Guide to Autism

How to Connect, Build Affection, and Manage Emotions in your ASD Child

This webinar is also included in the Happy Families Premium membership

Having a child with autism or Asperger’s syndrome places unique demands on parents. Nothing seems to be quite the way it was “supposed” to be. Communication, affection, behaviour, learning, and almost every aspect of life for a non-typically-developing child and their family can present challenges. Just a simple trip to the shops – not to mention getting through over a decade of formalised schooling – can seem near impossible some days.

This webinar is for every parent or educator who wants to know how to strengthen their bond with their autistic or Asperger’s child or student. It is for everyone who has ever wondered, “What am I doing wrong?” when their child won’t calm down, communicate, hug, or look them in the eyes. It is for every parent or educator who wants to know how to manage those meltdowns on days when it feels like the sky is falling in on their beautiful child who just can’t understand why no one around them can understand.

Join Dr Michelle Garnett as she and Dr Justin Coulson present A Parent’s Guide to Autism, a special webinar event especially for parents, teachers, and those who work or live with a child on the autism spectrum.
