Florida Tech Scott Center Offers Training for Parents of Children in Autism Spectrum
MELBOURNE, FLA.—The Scott Center for Autism Treatment of Florida Institute of Technology, in collaboration with Brevard Public Schools, the Family Liaison Project and Brevard PALS, offers “SNAP.” This series of training sessions is intended to build a positive relationship and promote collaboration between parents of children with autism and Brevard Public Schools in developing Individual Education Programs (IEP). These training sessions will use the “SNAP” program as a framework to establish trust and make the IEP process more efficient and transparent.
SNAP stands for Share: Building parent trust in the special education setting; Navigate: What services are available for my child?; Acknowledge: Domains, goals, parent responsibility; and Positive Outcomes: Know your child, be dedicated to the plan and be part of a team.
The training is offered Jan. 29, Feb. 19, March 19, April 2 and April 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. Parents are encouraged to attend all five sessions. A $10 donation per training is suggested but not required.
