PALO ALTO, Calif., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) at Packard Children's Hospital is offering a new 14-part educational series for parents of young children and adolescents with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This includes children with Asperger's Disorder, autism and PDD-NOS.
"We're designing this series to provide parents with information about ASD diagnoses, treatment, and services," said Jennifer Phillips, PhD, a clinical assistant professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Packard Children's Hospital. Subjects covered in the 14 sessions, which begin May 14, include the basics of behavior management, how to navigate the service system, research updates, and home strategies for skills building and stress reduction.
