The Caregiver Skills Training was developed by the World Health Organization, with support from Autism Speaks, to help parents and caregivers of young children with neurodevelopmental conditions, including autism, use evidence-based strategies to promote development. The intervention offers nine family group sessions and three individual coaching visits and covers topics such as communication and daily living skills.
