Professional Training: Southeast Asia
Classes are now forming and space is extremely limited. Classes will prepare professionals to work with special needs children and their parents in any age groups, focusing on the remediation of Autism’s core deficits. A combination of lectures, small group discussions, actual parent training sessions, video reviews and case studies will equip trainees to empower parents through meaningful engagements.
Come and join us, change lives and make a difference!
