There are many strategies and methods parents can implement to help their child with autism overcome behavioral and communication challenges. It is also important that parents get the emotional support they need as they address their child’s needs.
Any Baby Can offers group support sessions, Circle of Support, and individual sessions for parents of children with autism. When you’re looking after a child with autism, taking care of yourself is not an act of selfishness, its a necessity. Being emotionally strong allows you to be the best parent you can be for your child. Parents are encouraged to share information, get advice, and lean on each other for emotional support. By being around others in the same situation and sharing their experience helps to reduce the isolation many parents feel after receiving a child’s autism diagnosis.
Sessions are conducted by a licensed psychologist specializing in the needs of families facing autism at no cost to you. Morning and evening individual counseling sessions are available for your convenience.
Counseling is offered at our San Antonio office. Some topics covered include:
- Dealing with a new diagnosis
- How to keep your family together
- Marital relationship, divorce, and more
