Parenting Programmes

The Parenting Service offers a wide range of courses and workshops for families of children and young people with special needs for parent/carers both pre- and post-assessment.

Time Out for Special Needs is our seven week course offering parent/carers an insight into a wide range of topics which are not diagnosis-specific. For example, parents/carers of children with Autism may attend, ADHD, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy etc. The course offers parents an opportunity to meet with other parents facing some of the same challenges and the courses are delivered by professionals but also parents of children/young people with special needs.

We also offer a variety of workshops for Schools, who would like to offer parent/carers the opportunity to learn more about a range of topics on special needs, and offer an opportunity to meet with other parents.

We can also deliver a course or workshop to meet your organisation’s specific needs. For more information, please see our Bespoke Training Service.
