Session 4: Demystifying the Path of 2e Autism
Getting an autism diagnosis for a child can be an emotional and confusing process with lots of questions. How do I best support my child's individual differences? What should I tell them about their diagnosis? What are the most helpful interventions? Join Debbie and Monica Osgood for an enlightening conversation about key factors for developmental progress, including the importance of positive relationships and a "presume competence" mindset. Learn the difference between ABA and DIR (Developmental Individual Relationship-based) Model, and the role emotions, passions, and relationships play in DIR. Monica and Debbie also discuss the best way to assess for autism and where to seek diagnosis.
