Caregiver Skill Training

The program trains Master Trainers and Facilitators, who in turn train parents and other caregivers to use scientifically proven strategies for promoting child development, reducing disruptive behaviors and strengthening their own coping skills. In 2017, Caregiver Skills Training debuted in the United States, with a Master Trainer workshop to train specialists who will pilot the program. Based on the results and refinements of this and other pilot studies around the world, Autism Speaks Canada partnered with McGill University on the Caregiver Skills Training Program to empower parents and caregivers with evidence-based skills training in Quebec, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and the Yukon for children with autism.
