Beaumont Children's recognizes that dealing with autism doesn't end with a clinical office visit. That's why we've developed a variety of parent training programs to help educate you on caring for your child. Programs training programs offered are:

Lil' Sprouts Parent Education Group Program

Teaches parents how to begin to stimulate play, speech and language within the home environment. Speech-language pathologists demonstrate effective interactive play strategies and offer parents an opportunity to practice their new learning while interacting with their children during the Lil Sprouts training sessions.

The P.L.A.Y. Project Program

This program provides family and parent training for children with autism from eighteen months to six years of age. Trained P.L.A.Y. project clinicians present parents with techniques that are effective and useful in day-to-day speech and language interactions with children who have a diagnosis of PDD and ASD.

Family and Community Outreach

The Center for Human Development is involved in a wide variety of community programs. Our professionals speak frequently for local organizations, and we have collaborated with other Beaumont Children's Hospital departments to bring low-cost and free lectures to families.
