Workshops: Parent and Teacher Training

 

Parent Training

We offer a range of parent training programmes which include:

Licensed parent training programmes:

  • Cygnet parent support programme for parents of children and young people aged 5-19 years with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. The course is designed to help parents develop their knowledge on how a child on the autistic spectrum experiences the world and to guide parents through practical strategies they can use with their children.
  • EarlyBird (under five years) and EarlyBird Plus (ages four-nine) support programmes for parents and carers. Both programmes work on understanding autism, building confidence to encourage interaction and communication and analysing and managing behaviour. These courses run for 3 hours once a week for 12 weeks. They will be run in our clinic with a maximum of 6-8 families per training.
  • Hanen ‘More than Words’ for parents of children ages 5 and under with social communication difficulties. The programme provides parents with the tools, strategies and support they need to help their children reach their full communication potential.
