Parent Education Curriculum
Parents are the primary teachers of all young children and this is not different for children with autism. FamilyPath provides a practical and innovative training curriculum to all parents in our intervention program.
The curriculum outlines and teaches core strategies for engaging the child, educating parents on the how and why these strategies impact the child's development.
Involving parents and caregivers in the delivery of treatment is a primary goal of our Parent Education Curriculum.
