Support for SF Peninsula Parents New to the Autism Club

How I wish opportunities like this had been available when Leelo was newly diagnosed:

Education Series Offered for Parents of Young Children Diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder:
Enrollment under way for individual sessions or 10-week series, starting October 2

The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) at Packard Children's Hospital is offering a 10-part educational series for parents of young children (1-5 years) newly diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

This series has been designed to provide parents with information about ASD diagnoses, treatment, and services. Subjects covered in the 10 sessions, which begin October 2, include the basics of behavior management, how to navigate the service system, research updates, and home strategies for skills building and stress reduction.

Registration is available for individual sessions or the entire series.

Date: Thursdays beginning October 2
Time: 5:15pm-6:45pm
Location: 401 Quarry Road, Conf Room 2209
Phone: 650-721-6327

  1. Jeez. This was where Julia was diagnosed in 2005, and they didn't have anything like this. Meh. She would have been too old even then. Grrr.
