Although at present we are unable to offer parenting courses for ADHD, we do currently offer Autism workshops for parents of children who have been diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum. These are led by Elizabeth Winks, who is an experienced Clinical Nurse Specialist in Neurodevelopmental disorders.
The workshops take place over two Saturdays and typically happen twice per year, in a local hotel conference room.
Topics covered include:
Feelings regarding diagnosis
How do ASD children view the world?
Planning and time perception
Understanding behaviour and exploring strategies that may help
Refresher and questions from day 1
Anxiety – what is anxiety? CBT model, Stress model in ASD according to Lazarus. Helpful techniques.
Anger – linked to behaviour and what are the differences between people with and without ASD. Rage cycle explained.
If you are interested in joining the email distribution list for details of the next parenting course, please use our contact page to send us your details. Please be aware that places are limited on the course and courses fill up quickly. Charges apply.
Elizabeth is also available for subsequent individual sessions for children and parents if requested. Additional charges apply.
