Why This Program?

This 10-week, 90 min. program in self-care has been adapted specifically for parents caring for those with autism and other neurodiverse needs. It is designed to help parents/caregivers build the emotional resources in resilience and self-regulation to cope more effectively with the daily challenges and stressors and to help build associated skills in parenting.

Research and Benefits

  • Awareness of stress patterns
  • Improved skills in responding effectively to stressors
  • Increased parent connections with their child
  • Greater overall mental health
  • Improved family quality of life
