Date: March 14, 2020

Time: 9:00AM to 12:00PM

Location: Room 241, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, One Magnolia Circle

Event Flyer: FFP-winter-2020-nashville.jpg


A monthly workshop series for parents of young children with an autism spectrum disorder.

Program is free of charge.

Each 3-hour workshop focuses on providing parents and caregivers with strategies to use at home, school, and in the community. The strategies discussed are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

The focus of this workshop is on promoting safety for your child in the community. The first part of the workshop emphasizes safeguards that can be put into place in the community immediately, as it is important that your child is in a safe environment while they are still learning safety skills. The latter part of the workshop will focus on teaching community safety skills, such as “wait” and “stay with me,” that can be carried on as children age and engage in a variety of experiences.

Registration is required by midnight Tuesday, March 10, 2020.

Families First Child Care registration is by telephone request for children over 1 and under 10 years of age only following registration for the event. Please contact Nina Harris at (615) 322-7565 following registration if you need this service..
