The Behavioral Pediatrics Resource Center provides speakers for civic organizations, government agencies and other groups to help them better understand autism spectrum disorder, ADHD and anxiety.
These groups include organizations such as DFCS, foster parents, and law enforcement.
Some professionals in our local community (including teachers and school administrators) have a limited understanding of autism and the special needs of affected students. Better training for teachers helps these students on the autism spectrum. It also helps the rest of the class as disruptive behavior is reduced or eliminated. Therefore, the Behavioral Pediatrics Resource Center offers trainings for groups of educators.
