Workshops for Family Support Groups

The KATC staff provides 1 to 1.5 hour workshops on autism and related topics, as part of an ongoing effort to improve services for those affected with ASD in Kentucky. Autism related support groups and other family groups across Kentucky can access these workshops FREE of charge. Although we have a list of suggested topics below, we encourage family groups to work in collaboration with our trainers to design a presentation to meet your support group's needs.

The purpose of this form is to schedule a 1 to 1.5 hour workshop for a family group. We expect that the audience for this workshop will be comprised predominately of parents and family members of individuals with ASD. If your group is primarily comprised of professionals please complete the "Workshops for Professionals and the Community" form.

Due to the volume of presentations provided by KATC staff across the state, we require that this request form be received by KATC at least 8 weeks prior to the planned presentation date.

Continuing Education Units (CEU's) will not be provided. We look forward to working with you. Thank you!
