Webinar: Autism Navigator How-To Guide for Families

Who should attend?

This free webinar is for families of children 1 to 8 years of age who are concerned about their child’s social communication development, challenging behavior, or possible autism, or anyone interested in learning more about autism.

What will we cover?

Autism Navigator is collaborating with Autism Science Foundation to bring this webinar series to you. This webinar will help you learn about our How-To Guide for Families online course and ways you can use this resource to engage your child in activities you’re already doing every day and help develop your child’s social communication skills.

Each webinar will cover the following agenda:

  • What it takes to learn to talk—gestures, sounds, actions and more
  • How to support your child’s learning in everyday activities
  • How Autism Navigator and Baby Navigator online resources can help each family
We will feature new content and videos each webinar to focus our conversation about how to actively engage your child using evidence-based strategies in everyday activities. We will also have featured guests regularly that will be announced.

When is this scheduled?

This webinar series is scheduled twice a month and continues year-round. Join anytime and attend when you can.

  • Days: 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month (barring holidays)

Why is attending important?

By attending, you are joining a community of learners watching videos together and sharing their experiences, questions, and encouragement. You will receive a certificate of attendance. We cannot record our webinars because we show photos and videos of our families, so make sure to attend. Attendance certificates are emailed within two weeks of each webinar.

How do I register?

The How-To Guide Webinar Series is a recurring Zoom session. When you register for the first time, you won’t have to register for future webinars. Attend as often as you can.
