A series of workshops about Autism led by Adapt to Learn
Small Change, Big Difference’, our popular series of workshops for parents of children with a diagnosis of autism is back for a second run, but this time it will be run on line!
Run by Adapt to Learn in conjunction with the NAS Sutton Branch, the series of workshops will empower parents, grandparents. carers or other family members in supporting them to help their children by developing an in-depth understanding of autism.
Over a four week period, we will take a positive approach to your child’s diagnosis, while exploring, sharing and discussung practical strategies to help develop communication skills, pre-empt and manage behaviour and gain confidence and resilience.
During our online sessions, parents will be given the opportunity to make connections, gain support and feel less isolated.
Parents who attended the last set of workshops said
“Mel and Tracy make a great combo, keeping the sessions lively and engaging. It’s essential for all parents”
I felt ” a sense of shared experiences. Clear explanations and presentations. Feeling I was among people who understood”
The course comprises of four x 1.5 hour sessions and will cover a range of topics.
The sessions will be held online via Google Meet. All you need is a device with a camera, such as laptop or smart phone. You don’t need to have a Google accounts. You do need to find an hour and a half of undisturbed time – probably the hardest bit!
