Skills Building and Awareness Training

Child and Community Resources offers skill building and awareness training for parents, professionals, and peers with the objective to spread awareness about ASD and how to teach understanding and tolerance when conversing with someone who is special needs, in particular, ASD.

By offering engaging workshops, presentations, school-support, and social & life skills groups, we hope to bridge the gap between children affected by ASD, their peers, professionals who aid them, and their families who are directly affected by the disorder.
