Helping you to understand and support your child of 11+ to be the best they can be with as little conflict as possible

About this Event

Would you like to find out more about how the brain develops during the teen years and what you can do to help?

Do you struggle to cope with your teenager’s changing moods?

Is your child approaching the teenage years and you would like to be prepared?

There is a great deal of current research into the development of the teenage brain and we know that many parents are interested in why and how the teenage brain is changing during adolescence but, in particular want to know what they can do to support their children during this time and deal with any tricky behaviour that they might see. This is especially important during these testing times.

As a parent of a child with additional needs, you may well be wondering how your child will experience adolescence and how you can support them whilst helping them to develop important independence skills.

Letting go is hard for most parents and we are often asked how to help our children towards adulthood when they have needs that may make them vulnerable and make parents more anxious.

Run by highly experienced facilitators, counsellors and parenting practitioners, this online workshop will help parents to understand:

  • Teenage brain development and how it affects a child with ASD/ADHD.
  • Reducing conflict by learning how to respond effectively to difficult situations.
  • Strengthening your parent/child relationship.
  • How to agree appropriate boundaries and teach risk assessment.
  • Adapting our parenting approach to help our teens become independent adults.
  • Where to access further help and support, both locally and nationally.

The Supporting Links ethos is not simply to impart information by Powerpoint, but to enable parents to learn valuable skills that will help them to support their children. Our emphasis is on helping parents to use new knowledge and strategies within their own families and, thereby, support their child.

The workshop will take place via Zoom and will incorporate a Q&A session.

The workshop consists of one 2 hour session to be held on Wednesday, 2nd December and will take place online using Zoom. It will begin promptly at 7.30pm.

This workshop is provided free to parents by Herts County Council and it is open to all parents and carers of children aged 2-25 years old with suspected or diagnosed Autistic Spectrum Disorder and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder who are living in Hertfordshire.

There are a limited number of places which are offered on a first come, first served basis.

Please only book a place if you will definitely be attending. We expect to be fully booked with a long waiting list.

Supporting Links is an independent company.
