Relationships are the Key to Progress Promoting Sustainable Developmental Outcomes
Using the DIR-FCD Relationship-Based Model and Parent Mediated Interventions to Support Parents as Agents of Change to Reach the Potential of Individuals with Autism and Other ChallengesWednesday,
Relationships are fundamental to every child’s development and parent-child interactions are at the heart of promoting relatedness and social and emotional competence. Working together with parents and children with autism or other developmental and mental health challenges is at the core of the DIR Model, which pioneered parent mediated interventions for the treatment of autism and how relationships sustain progress. Building the foundations for lifelong functional competence and independence also relies on comprehensive interventions and experiences tailored to the unique characteristics of each individual.
Join us as we explore the clinical and research approaches of parent mediated interventions and the different ways parents are the agents of change reducing autism severity and sustaining the benefits after treatment ends. Learn to observe and measure change and how to think developmentally. See how therapists and educators work with parents to advance development. Take this longitudinal journey with us and hear from young adults with ASD as they reflect on their experiences and parent interactions as they strived for competence and independence.
