Education


The Autism Society is committed to educating people about autism and various interventions.  In addition to families who live with autism every day, we also work to help members of the community understand the disorder.  We can send written material on a wide variety of autism-related topics and, with enough lead time, provide speakers.  We also make a point to inform our constituents about trainings, workshops, and presentations around the region.  As resources allow, we sponsor educational programs and offer scholarships so that parents can attend conferences.  We are always looking for ways to collaborate on educational initiatives.

The ABCs of ASD:
A workshop series for parents of children with autism
Whether you’re a first-timer or well-versed in the art of parenthood, you know every child is different. And each
child, from your first to your last, presents unique challenges. We’re here to help as you begin the next step of your
parenthood journey: raising a child with autism.

Designed for your family’s needs:
We’ve designed a workshop series for parents and
caregivers like you who have received their child’s
autism diagnosis and are wondering, “What do I do
next?” These workshops are a great place to start,
covering frequently asked questions, common
challenges, and sharing perspective on what it’s like
to raise a child with autism.

Complimentary and a la carte:
These one-hour sessions are easy to fit into a hectic
schedule. We understand that life moves fast and you
may not be able to attend every one. That’s okay! Sign
up for whichever sessions match your family’s schedule
and needs. And rest easy knowing that a missed
workshop won’t take a toll on your wallet.

Please RSVP with your name and the workshops you will be attending to ahart@bluesprigpediatrics.com.
