autism focused community workshops

Due to the Coronavirus concerns in Nashville, TN and beyond the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center has canceled this workshop. Please check this page for rescheduled workshops in the coming months. 

Siskin Children's Institute is proud to partner with the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center's Treatment & Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) program and the Chattanooga Autism Center to provide free workshops for parents of young children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

Each 3-hour workshop focuses on providing parents and caregivers with strategies to use at home, at school, and in the community. The strategies discussed are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). 
Please note- A portion of these sessions include live streaming with the TRIAD staff in Nashville, along with in-person segments and activities.

Limited childcare (restrictions apply) is available first come first served. Please indicate interest in on-site care when registering. Please note- Childcare is available for children 10 years and younger with a limit of four children per family due to staffing limitations.
