While there are many services and treatment groups for the kids, what about the parents?
"Thinking Emotion" method was developed as a research study at Stanford University and it can help you take back your sense of control. This is a hands on method that you can implement in your daily life.
This is an introductory meeting to a practical workshop that will provide parents with the following tools-
- Strategies to regulate emotions- both the parents' and the child's
- Tools to cope with the many challenges at home and at school
- Simulations of real- life situations to work through them (e.g. Meltdowns, difficult transitions etc.)
- A safe atmosphere with other parents of children with ASD- because they're in the same boat
