About the Master Trainer (MT) Workshop

Become a Master Trainer for the Caregivers Skills Training (CST) Program, and help caregivers of young children with neurodevelopmental conditions, including autism, learn the skills needed to support their child's growth and development.

Gain knowledge and skills to:

  • Teach caregivers to use evidence-based strategies with their children promoting shared engagement, social skills, and positive behaviours through play and daily home routines
  • Implement the CST Program in your routine services
  • Train and supervise others to carry out the intervention with you.


About the CST Program
