Earlybird and Earlybird Plus

This is an excellent course for improving your understanding of your child’s autism and discussing strategies to support them at home and school. It is offered to families with a child on the Autistic Spectrum,  aged 4 – 8 years old at the start of the course. Each family has 2 places allocated – these can be mum and dad, or parent and a close family member eg grandparent / aunt / uncle or parent and friend. If you attend the course there is provision for a member of staff, from the school that your child attends, to also attend the training – this is very valuable in sharing home / school understanding of your child.

Please consider taking up the opportunity of this training – families who have attended training in the past have commented on how much more confident they feel, how much they enjoyed meeting and sharing experiences with other families and improvements in home / school support.  - For further details contact
