Join us in Overland Park, KS in September 14-16, 2018  to learn how to make the biggest difference for young children with autism and their families. The More Than Words® workshop is newly updated to provide you with even more effective tools for zeroing in on the very specific needs of young children with autism and addressing those needs with evidence-based, family-centered techniques. Updates include a new assessment and goal-setting framework, as well as enhanced intervention strategies that target the most important areas of difficulty for children with autism.
Space is limited and our workshops fill quickly! For more information or to register, email or visit the link below:
