Frequently Asked Questions

Can I sign up for only one workshop in a series and not the whole series?A:
You can, BUT . . . The workshops are designed as a series to be taken in order. You will get the most from your experience if you take all three workshops in the series together.
Would APC workshops be helpful for parents of children who do not have autism, but who have behavioral challenges?A:
Absolutely. The strategies and approaches are compatible with autism therapies, but they do not focus exclusively on autism. The workshops focus on understanding your child and their behavior and on learning how to work with your child instead of struggle against them. Parents of children with ADHD, ADD, Down Syndrome, other developmental disabilities, speech and language challenges and a variety of other disabilities will benefit from APC workshops as well as from participation in the online forum.
Are your workshops designed for a particular age group?A:
No. APC helps parents of young children, school age children, teens and young adults. The strategies parents use remain the same, though as your child ages they might apply in a different way. If you are having a difficult time managing your child’s behavior at any age, then APC can offer you guidance and help. In addition, you will have the opportunity to ask specific questions about your child and your challenges in the workshops.
Do I have to participate in the online forum?A:
You don’t, but you would be crazy not to! Jump in. If you don’t feel comfortable sharing at first, just visit and experience the power of the community of parents helping parents. Then take small steps to more fully participate. The more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it!
Will you be offering advanced workshops after the initial series of three?A:
Yes. Current topics in the works include “Helping your Child Develop Language,” and “Siblings of Children with Special Needs.” If you would like to suggest additional topics, please contact us and let us know.
What should I bring to the Workshops?A:
All you need is a pen, your experiences and an openness to learn.
