Understanding Challenging Behavior in Children with Developmental Disabilities:

A 5 week series for families raising a child with special needs.

Are challenging behaviors getting in the way of parenting your child with autism or other developmental disabilities? Admission Criteria: Your child should be between 4-18 and you live in Santa Clara County.

Following the first four sessions, the fifth session will assist you in creating a one-page description that infuses your learning about how to better support your child and includes: 1. what is important to your child, 2. what people like and admire about that child, and 3. what good supports look like for your son or daughter.
