Coffee Talk & Learn: Wait List Workshop Series - Let's Talk About Behavior

4:30 - 6:30 PM
We Rock The Spectrum Whittier
15334 Whittier Blvd #10C
Whittier, CA 90603

Parents of children with autism are sometimes added to a wait list before assessments, therapies and treatments can begin. There are things you can do while on the wait list and waiting isn’t one of them! Join us for a discussion about the things you can do at home to help your child and how to get organized and ready for the next appointment. *This workshop will be held in the side party room away from the play area (not our regular meeting area). Kids are welcome and can play for a discounted Coffee Talk rate of $7 but will need to be supervised by an adult caregiver/parent.
