txpt-parentsAugust 5, 2017 – FARMERS BRANCH, TX – by Taylor Valentine – Farmers Branch Region Hosts Its 2nd Back to School Edition Parent Training Event at It’s A Sensory World.

Jumping into the school year with educational resources and fun-filled activities. Our Skill Sprout Texas’ location hosted its 2nd Parent Training event: Back to School Edition on Friday, August 5th at It’s a Sensory World. The event was very successful with over 15 parents and children in attendance, highlighting some of ABA’s (Applied Behavior Analysis) most-asked topics: Establishing Effective Routines, Navigating Behavior Intervention Plans, Increasing Requesting Skills, Community Outings, and Setting Priorities and Expectations. 

The purpose of these parent trainings are to provide those helpful resources & tips to our Autism families so they are able to effectively and proactively give their children the best support as possible. 

“Our team had a great time spending the afternoon with current client families and meeting new families too! I’ve already received positive feedback from several families wanting more information about Skill Sprout’s services and expressing interest in attending the next event. This event really showed how talented our team is and how valuable the services we provide are to families in our community!” said Carly Grimes, Social Skills Coordinator/Counselor. 

While our parents were participating during the parent training, the children were supervised by our licensed therapists, having fun in the gymnasium, interacting with superheroes (thanks to our Lead Line Therapist, Michael Finn & Heroic Inner Kids) and enjoying healthy snacks. In addition to the food and entertainment, we provided each of the children with back to school Skill Sprout themed bags filled with custom fidget spinners, coloring books & crayons, squishy balls, cups and much more. 

“I am super excited about the engagement from our families and cannot wait until we plan for another successful event in Texas, and throughout the other Illinois regions. So definitely be on the lookout!,” said Taylor Valentine, Lead Marketing Assistant- Texas. 

Skill Sprout will soon host parent training events in Illinois and will have another event in Texas during the winter season.
