After many, many months of trying to coordinate a presentation or parent training with the Autism Alliance in Framingham! The original topic was changed to the more timely topic of: Tips for Enhancing Communication for Individuals with Autism in the Time of Covid-19. It was well-attended over Zoom and it was wonderful to interact with so many caring professionals and parents! Topics included the importance of self-care for parents and creating routines for our learners. Additionally, the importance of having visual communication supports available was emphasized.
