The Parents’ Toolkit

Short hands-on workshop training modules for parents of children with ASD

INTENT

This program will essentially aim to empower parents with therapeutic tools and strategies about a particular goal. For example: Parents often hear from us or from teachers that their child needs more work on “Fine motor skills” or they may identify that their child is “unable to channelise their energy”. This module aims to offer a better understanding and provide tips and tools for a parent who is motivated to learn more about need-based topics. This will enhance their tool kit by helping them access the therapists firsthand. We believe parents’ understanding of this knowledge as pertaining to their child, can contribute significantly to the child’s progress.

Some of the weekly training offered in this series are

  • Channelizing the child’s energies through sensory processing framework (Stay home edition ).
  • Foundation to social communication and contextual understanding of the family as a unit
  • Enhancing Fine Motor Skills as a foundation for future Handwriting
  • Toileting skills
  • Obstacle Courses for Motor Planning and Coordination
