Time Out for Parents: Children with Special Needs Course - Autism - Thursday 5th July

Spaces are available on the ‘Time Out for Parents: Children with Special Needs Course - Autism’ starting on Thursday 5th July.  It is being delivered by the Youth Action Diversity Trust. 

About the Course:

What is autism and what causes it? The three sessions will give you hope as you understand more about ASD, how it affects your child and how you can work with their unique personality and abilities. You’ll learn about possible interventions and therapies and helping your child to live with sensory processing differences. You’ll explore the triad of impairment and how you can help your child with issues of communication, imagination and social interaction. There’s advice on how to handle special interests or repetitive behaviour that can dominate your child’s life. As well as guidance on oppositional behaviour using practical strategies and ideas on how to handle ‘melt downs’.
