We are now offering a mix of face to face and on-line training.
Book in to one of our 90 minute online “TAG talks” aimed at giving parents a little insight into how autism might affect their young person – and some simple strategies to help support their needs or attend one of our longer face to face sessions held locally. Sessions focus on specific topics including managing emotions, sensory differences and supporting siblings. They include an interactive Q and A session.
These sessions are open to parents and carers across East Berkshire of young people who either have a diagnosis of an autistic spectrum condition, or have been referred for assessment. To book contact Becky at email@example.com
Here’s what parents have to say about our training…
“I liked the warmth, care, understanding and humour the training was delivered with.”
“Trainers are extremely knowledgeable, understanding and offer endless great advice and positivity.”
“Was great to be with people who get it.”
