We offer a free online presentation about autism, how to seek treatment, and ABA basics.  This presentation is appropriate for parents who have concerns their child may be on the spectrum, parents whose children have been newly diagnosed, families who may have friends or family members recently diagnosed, or anyone who may be curious to learn.  We are also available for a live presentation for staff development hours for daycares, preschools, or anyone else who works with young children or sees young children as patients.  Please call or e mail for access to the presentation.  After watching the presentation someone will be available to discuss any questions you may have over the phone.
