NOW SERVING FAMILIES! We are now providing coaching services to families with children with autism ages 4 years old to 8 years old. We want to help you read more to your child and teach you strategies for helping your child to learn more about reading and how to communicate with you during reading. We will continue this project until May 2019 so it is not to late to sign up! Please click on the “Projects” tab above and select “Lsquared” to learn more about this oppurtunity.
