The Autism Service offers a series of workshops and courses for parent/carers who have children or young people who are pre- and post- assessment for Autism.
For parents/carers waiting to get an assessment, or having just recently had a diagnosis of Autism, we advise starting with the Pre- and Post-Assessment Workshops, starting with the Introduction to Autism, and if it’s pertinent, our Sensory Processing Workshop.
The Time Out for Autism Course is a more intensive course over 5 weeks, which covers a number of different elements of supporting children with Autism in more depth.
Another opportunity to learn more about Autism and meet other parent/carers in a similar situation are the monthly Autistic Girls and Young Women’s workshops, which cover a range of topics, and are delivered by some of our Specialist Parenting Practitioners. We also offer one-off workshops under Autism Workshops for Parents/Carers.
Every year, we also offer a course of 4 linked workshops focusing on Autism and Anxiety, and how to support children who experience these difficulties.
We offer a Course and Workshop on the Pathological Demand Avoidance profile of Autism.
We run activity and social skills sessions via our A Team and Auticulate groups for children and young people.
Sleep Courses and Clinics are also available for parent/carers whose children and young people have sleep difficulties.
We also run workshops for Practitioners looking at a variety of topics relating to working with children and young people who have or are suspected of having Autism.
