Online On-Demand Caregiver Skills Training

Around the world, many children with autism and other developmental disabilities lack access to quality care and interventions. To help these families, the World Health Organization (WHO), with support from Autism Speaks, developed the Caregiver Skills Training (CST) for Families of Children with Developmental Delays or Disabilities.

At no cost to families, the evidence-based CST program teaches parents and caregivers the day-to-day skills they need to help their children reach their full potential. Caregivers are taught to use everyday play and home routines as opportunities to build their child’s communication, engagement, positive behavior, and daily living skills.

Parents and caregivers also learn essential problem-solving and self-care skills to build confidence, reduce stress, and improve their overall well-being—all while learning how to better support their children.
