STAR Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and T.A.C.T. (Teaching the Autism Community Trades) are two Colorado nonprofits who have partnered to create a series of respite camps serving adolescents who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Developmental Pathways has awarded the organizations a $25,000 grant to fund three F.U.S.E. (Fostering Unlimited Success and Empowerment) camps through 2018. STAR Institute offers premier treatment for SPD and brings expertise in social skills while T.AC.T. teaches trade and life skills to individuals with ASD and SPD with an emphasis on fostering independence and personal growth.

The objective of this class is to help parents understand the importance of first foods and spoon feedings; what foods to offer; when to offer different foods; and techniques to promote successful feeders. Find out more and register here.
