Whether you are a first-time parent of an infant or you have an infant with an older sibling who has a diagnosis with autism spectrum disorder, SARRC's Milestones program provides aprents with helpful information to make the first year and a half of your infant's life a supported experience. Whether searching for informational classes or more consistent monitoring and/or early intervention, we have you covered. Milestones consists of:
Milestones Education and Information for Parents of Infants: Offering parents evidence-based information on developmental milestones and parenting practices that will encourage play and interaction. Participation is offered in-person or by email based on your preference and schedule! Milestones in-person classes are held at SARRC's Campus for Exceptional Children located on the outskirts of downtown Phoenix (Van Buren and 18th St.).
Milestones Monitoring: Let us watch you grow. Some parents will have the opportunity to participate in on-going assessments beginning as early at 6 months up until 18 months. Participation in this service will be determined based on assessment and availability of services. Assessment results will be used to provide clinical recommendations and/or recommendation to pursue full diagnostic evaluation.
12-Week Consultation: 12-week parent-implemented early intervention program for infants or young toddlers (6 mos+) demonstrating early signs of ASD or with a diagnosis of ASD. Participation in this service will be determined based on assessment and/or diagnosis and availability of service. During the program, coaches will work together with parents to target goals through play and everyday interactions.
