Seminar to host parents of autistic children

The Center for Autism and Related Disorders will host “Where Do I Go from Here?,” a seminar for parents, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. March 10 at the CARD Rochester office, 6 N. Main St., Suite 110, in Fairport.

The program will be presented by Denise Rhine, an autism expert and behavior analyst. The free seminar is open to the entire community and benefits parents and caregivers of children from birth to 5 years of age.

Attendees will receive a resource pack. To register, contact Katie DiRaimondo at K.DiRaimondo@centerforautism.com. For more information about CARD Rochester, visit http://rochester.centerforautism.com.

“Parents who have or suspect their children are on the autism spectrum will gain knowledge of research-based effective treatments which can increase their children’s skill set and assist in reducing problem behaviors,” said Rhine, CARD Rochester managing supervisor. “It will also allow them to see the most recent technological advances encompassing effective programs for the treatment of autism spectrum disorders.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in every 110 children in America is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, making autism more prevalent than pediatric cancer, juvenile diabetes and childhood AIDS combined.
