Many parents of young children are wondering how to provide some type of learning support during this challenging time. This includes children whose parents are concerned about speech/language development, children on the waitlist for autism assessment, and children who have recently been diagnosed with autism but have not yet started early intervention.
In this session, a behaviour analyst/special educator and a speech-language pathologist will provide a framework for thinking about how to provide support. This will include resources for engaging children in activities that can enhance informal learning and support social-communication development. This presentation is intended for parents and early intervention service providers.
