Parenting and High Functioning Autism: Skills and Strategies to Better Support Your Child or Teen
February 4, 2021 –
Children and Adolescents with high-functioning autism (HFA) face many challenges including difficulties with sensory overload, deficits in social skills and communication, rigidity, and poor emotion regulation. Additionally, it is common for co-occurring conditions to be present such as ADHD, OCD, Anxiety and Depression. This workshop will assist parents to better understand the complexity of HFA, learn skills and strategies to improve interactions with their child or teen, and to assist their child or teen in learning emotion regulation; how to reduce overstimulation, stress and anxiety; and, how to improve social interactions to bring about overall improvements in functional daily living and self-esteem.
