Classes for Parents and Caregivers of Children

Autism 200 is a series of 90-minute classes for parents and caregivers of children with autism who wish to better understand this disorder. While designed around autism, the topics definitely apply to individuals with other developmental disabilities as well. Faculty from Seattle Children's, the University of Washington and community providers teach the classes.

Lectures are available to the public free of charge through Seattle Children's video and teleconferencing outreach program. Starting March 15th, they will be delivered at Western Washington University's Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic.
