Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are terms to define a complex disorder characterized by a broad range of social and communication skills.

Autism affects an estimated 1 in 36  children in the U.S. (2023), with over 70 million people being affected worldwide.

Children with autism often experience unique challenges, visible in their behavior, which may include:

  • Delayed speech development
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Struggling with effective communication
  • Poor socialization skills
  • Repetitive or aggressive behaviors or speech, or
  • Difficulty in pointing to objects of interest

The onset of symptoms often appears before the age of three, therefore early intervention is essential to achieve optimal outcomes in therapy approaches.

Coaching is a bit different from traditional psychotherapy or counseling in that its focus is more goal-directed.

Whereas traditional therapy may have you spend weeks exploring past events to recognize how they have contributed to current moods and behaviors, parenting coaching helps you choose a goal (get my child to do their homework without a daily tantrum) and offers tried and true techniques to help get the outcomes you desire.

Parenting coaching is for any parent that wishes to resolve behavioral struggles with their children. These struggles can include typical daily struggles such as:

  • Morning routines
  • Homework struggles
  • Sibling bickering

But coaching can also help with more demanding behaviors that push the parent’s skillset. These include:

  • Dealing with a strong-willed child
  • Getting a picky eater to eat
  • Engaging with an angry or defiant teenager
  • Guiding a child with Attention Deficit issues

Families attend once a week Monday–Thursday from September to May. Services are comprehensive and designed to enhance the child-rearing skills of parents in order to foster the healthy development of their children and ensure school readiness in their children.

Parents are supported in meeting their educational and personal growth goals in ensuring economic stability. Monthly home visits assess the family home environment and reinforce lessons learned in the classroom. Support services are provided to parents in order for them to begin building safety nets of support to strengthen their families. Classes are provided in Spanish and English.

The Services to Fathers Component is integrated into the Parent-Child Education Program. This program provides weekly interactive fatherhood classes presented in a support group setting validating their personal experiences with life copying mechanism. In addition, couples learn about anger and stress management, domestic violence prevention, how to express their emotions in a positive manner, and the community support and opportunities to achieve their goals.
