We are offering two adult places per child, if both parents/carers are not able to attend then one parent can bring another adult along (this could be a relative or a friend). However we do ask that the same people attend all of the sessions, if possible.
We are offering a place on all 3 sessions and we ask for your attendance at all sessions.
There are no facilities for children and the course content is not suitable for children or young people.
The Anxiety Workshop will be held over three weekly sessions, The workshop is designed for parents/carers and will provide information about anxiety in children with ASD, how it might affect them and why (this can include some challenging behaviours). The workshop aims to improve the confidence of parents/carers in recognising and managing their child's anxiety. We will help you to make an action plan, look at different strategies appropriate for your child and will look at ways that you can introduce these at home.
Please note that if there are insufficient numbers to make this course viable, the event may be cancelled, and you will be informed in advance of the start date.
