The South East Association for Special Parks And Recreation (SEASPAR) is hosting a free education session for parents of children with disabilities at the Downers Grove Recreation Center on Saturday, April 13 from 9:45-11:45 a.m.


The education session will help parents of children with disabilities obtain the fundamentals of fostering independence in their child. A Behavior Analyst from C.A.B.S. Autism and ABA Therapy Services will present and provide the group with antecedent supports, tips, and tactics to tackle some common associated behaviors that can be applied at home and in other settings.


Parents will learn the importance of teaching these independence skills when a child is young so they know how to take good care of themselves when they’re grown and ready. Time will also be provided with C.A.B.S. staff for questions, answers, and sharing.


Free childcare is provided. Parents do not need to have a child participating in SEASPAR programs in order to attend.


The Downers Grove Recreation Center is located at 4500 Belmont Road in Downers Grove.


For more information or to register for the session, visit or call 630-960-7600.
