There is a long list of therapies recommended for #autism - how do you know which therapies are best? Dr. Laura Mraz, OTD, OTR/L, and founder/CEO of Eyas Landing and @Blue Bird Day put on a workshop for us to help us learn more about the different types of therapy, and how to put together your own multidisciplinary therapy plan! It's posted on our website and YouTube Channel, where you can find our archive of past parent workshops, with topics ranging from feeding tips, sensory processing, challenging behavior, IEPs, and more!

Eyas Landing is holding another Parent Support Group! This program is an 8-week series from 11 - 12 PM on Fridays, beginning June 3rd, led by Eyas Landing's Social Work Department Lead, Annie McGunagle. This series will be held virtually on Microsoft Teams. Please email [email protected] listing the weeks you would like to attend and an administrative case manager will reach out to assist with next steps.

This group is an open group that is rooted in emotional processing and problem-solving. Parents who have joined previous sessions have shared present challenges with the group and have gotten support and ideas around navigating a variety of topics. There is no assigned topic or lecture during group sessions, as the function of this group is to connect parents with one another to create deeper connections and opportunities for support as facilitated by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Please note that if your child is not currently enrolled in social work services with our Eyas Landing team, all participants must have current social work evaluations on file for enrollment.
