The Autism Program offers training for families, caregivers and professionals who support individuals living with an autism spectrum disorder. Training is scheduled based upon your individual needs or those of the community.
Topics range from autism spectrum disorder overview to understanding your child’s behavior. Easterseals also offers training credits for some professional development. Other trainings include partnerships with community agencies and professionals.
A group where parents, caregivers and community members can talk about topics related to autism spectrum disorder. The purpose of the group is for people to connect, help support each other and build a support network.
As we continue to closely monitor the coronavirus, the health and safety of our clients, families, volunteers and staff remain our top priority. Therefore, we are excited to offer VIRTUAL ZOOM meetings during this time.
