Parenting Courses

 

Parenting a child with ADHD is a particular challenge and traditional parenting skills are often ineffective. We provide courses covering the key symptoms of ADHD, behaviour management, treatment options and coping strategies and support for parents. A comprehensive workbook is included.

In addition to this, we offer Autism workshops for parents of children who have been diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum. These will be led by Elizabeth Winks, who is an experienced Clinical Nurse Specialist in Neurodevelopmental disorders. The workshops take place over two Saturdays and topics covered will include:

Day 1
Feelings regarding diagnosis
How do ASD children view the world?
Planning and time perception
Speech development
Imagination
Sensory sensitivities
Understanding behaviour and exploring strategies that may help

Follow up day
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.

Elizabeth will also be available for individual sessions for children and parents if requested.
