It takes a community to raise a child. To raise a child with ASD takes a community who are knowledgeable, committed and prepared to work together. No one person can do it alone.
'tips for autism' is a course where a team of people dedicates three days to learning about and developing interventions and plans to support their child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
The course is free for participants and available nationwide for teams supporting school-aged children with ASD.
Our programme for 2014 is now complete. Thank you to everyone for a very successful year with the majority of courses full and excellent feedback from participants. Thanks in particular to our facilitators – our participants rated feedback questions about them at 4.9 out of 5 across all courses in 2014.
We run courses from about March until August and will start planning for 2015 shortly. If you know of a team who are interested in attending a course in 2015, please complete the contact form and we can put you on our mailing list. Providing us with your details helps us to plan locations for courses and also means that you will get early notice of any courses in your area.
