PACT

The Parents and Children Setting Goals Together (PACT) project provides training to parents/caregivers of children with autism, ages 3-22, on two topics:  Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles/practices, and Transition to Adulthood. To date, we have served 195 parents.

 

In the webinar workshop, parents will: 

  • Learn about the transition-to-adulthood process
  • Learn about transition services as required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as well as actions they can take to support the development of their child’s post-secondary goals, as a member of their child’s ARD (Admission, Review, and Dismal) Team
  • Learn about career exploration activities, employment soft skills, adult services, and community resources that may be helpful for their child
