ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

This workshop gives information about the areas of difference seen in Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) - Communication, Interaction, Flexibility of Thinking and Sensory Processing Disorder.

The workshop also provides opportunity to share your experiences with other parents/ carers, view resources and find out about services that can support you and your child.

Please note the workshop is only available to people who pay council tax to Wakefield Council (or the child that they care for must live in the Wakefield Council district).

FAQs

Can I bring my child or their sibling?

Unfortunately only people over the age of 18 years can attend the workshop as we have no childcare facilities or insurance cover for children under 18.

Can I have more than 1 place?

Yes - other family members such as Parents, Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles, siblings over the age of 18 years and family friends that care for the child are able to attend the workshop. A separate booking is required for each person attending.
