- Communication Program Dennis will be taking children with Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD, NOS and high functioning autism for one hour per week for approximately six weeks on a one to one basis for a new program: Communication Assessment Training (CAT). The program is a visual and concrete design that attracts attention of the children and encourages them to talk about their thoughts and emotions in a non-defensive manner. This program kit helps them express their feelings and emotions without meltdowns and temper tantrums as well as when they are in conflict. It also teaches a lot about human emotions, self-insight, assertiveness, circle of friends, personal interests, conflict resolution and sensory issues. Please contact Dennis at 721-5533 for further information. The cost is only $15 per week for the program with ASBH covering the rest of the expenses. Don’t delay! Space is limited.
