Any Baby Can is here to help. Alongside parent training classes and counseling, additional resources such as toilet training and informational classes are available to families raising an individual with autism. If you would like more information about any of these services below please feel free to contact us!
Autism Services Safety Training
Parents and caregivers of children with autism are invited to this class to learn important information of safety in their home and community. Parents receive a valuable Toolbox filled with information and visual supports.
Toilet Training and Personal Hygiene
Toileting skills are a critical life skill for every child on the Autism spectrum. It removes barriers in the community for both the child and the family. It reduces the financial burden for the family and it helps develop independent functioning. When a child is toilet trained there are increased opportunities for interaction with their peers in a wider range of activities in which they may participate
The toilet training class is a 1 session course that teaches parents strategies to develop and implement a toilet training program for their child.
Personal Hygiene is another critical life skill. The Autism Services program offers training sessions for families raising older children with autism on how to develop and teach hygiene skills such as bathing, showering, shaving, etc.
The Birthday Social
During many counseling sessions provided by our Autism Services Program, parents expressed their sadness regarding their child with autism never being invited to attend birthday parties from their school or neighborhood peers while at the same time these parents expressed that their child had no friends to invite to their own birthday party.
Because every child should have a birthday celebration with their peers, Any Baby Can’s Autism Services program holds quarterly birthday parties for our families that are currently enrolled in the Autism Services program.
