From Dr. Deb Childress, Ph.D. and Dr. Ron Anderson, Ph.D. of SEL Media came the following email I received that I wish to share:
With the rising number of students receiving an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis, we are faced with the challenge of finding cost effective, accessible and quality supports for these children and their families. 3-C Institute for Social Development and SELmedia have been working to fill this need for over ten years.
Recently we developed a workshop aimed at parents of children on the autism spectrum designed to provide practical information, ideas and activities for helping their children develop core social skills. The workshop is set up as a 3 hour on-line course that is broken down into modules for ease of use for parents with busy schedules.
The course is an overview of foundational social skills that children use every day. Using a live audience of parents of children with an autism spectrum diagnosis, the course seeks to raise and answer questions parents often want to ask about social skill development.
If you would like to learn more about this new resource as well as other programs developed at the 3-CInstitute for Social Development visit our website .
We are making this course available directly to parents as well as through partnership opportunities with organizations. If you are interested in working with us to distribute this workshop please contact me via email.
Additionally we have developed a free resource for educators and parents whose children on the autism spectrum are entering a regular classroom for the first time. To get this free series of lessons, set up a free account at our online resource center. Create an account by creating a password and adding your email. This free resource and others that will be posted monthly are available to you at any time.
Thank you for considering this opportunity.
