How to Talk So Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder Will Listen And Listen So You Hear What Kids with ASD Want To Say (2 – 8 years)

Do you find yourself perplexed or depleted by the daily demands of raising, treating, or teaching a child with an autism spectrum disorder or Asperger’s? Is your child challenged by everyday routines like getting dressed in the morning or going to bed at night; coping with transitions, such as starting or ending a therapy session; or staying calm when hearing a bell ring in the school yard? Join other parents and professionals working or living with children on the autism spectrum. Learn concrete strategies that support back-and-forth communication; engage children’s cooperation; help children express their feelings; provide alternatives to punishment; build self-esteem; and enhance relationships.

This practical, experiential, and lively workshop is based on the best-selling books by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, including How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk, and on the Floor Time approach of Dr. Stanley Greenspan. Previous participants have shared: “So helpful!” “I learned a lot!” We are fortunate to be able to take advantage of the expertise of Israeli autism expert Dr. Ilene Lee and nationally recognized parenting expert Julie King in their limited Bay Area appearance together.

Sunday Intensive: Sun., Mar. 24, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm. $219 per person/$319 per couple. Fee includes one workbook ($10). Register at http://www.parentsplaceonline.org/marin/classes/
