AutPlay Therapy is a training and educational program to help mental health professionals learn about, work with, and support Neurodivergent children through a neurodiversity affirming understanding. Parents play a significant role in their Neurodivergent child’s navigation and growth. You are the primary attachment figure, the everyday caregiver, and the main person who teaches, guides, nurtures, and models for your child. To help you better understand your Neurodivergent child and neurodiversity affirming concepts, we have created a Parent’s Resource Guide. Please print off this guide and access the relevant resources to further your knowledge and understanding.

Participate in a Consultation Session
Sometimes parents have a few questions or simply need some “next step” guidance, sometimes parents want more formal information about relational parenting, play therapy, or neurodiversity. We offer consultation sessions for parents. Consultations can be provided in person, by phone, or video conference. No matter where you live, you can participate in a consultation. Typical consultation services include understanding dysregulated behavior, AutPlay at home, and understanding autism.
