Our free, self-directed courses support the community around the child or young person and provide an excellent starting point for understanding your child's diagnosis and needs. Based on accepted best practice and your legal requirements, our courses also provide a window into the concerns of parents and how they deal with situations that arise in everyday life.
- Discover how we learn and process information so you can share a common language with schools and support your child at home
- Be informed about your right to timely information and support
- Reach decisions with the ‘team around the child’ about how best to support your child and maximise their developmental progress
- Hear real accounts of the issues that concern parents the most and how they look after themselves and their families
This training has impacted me at home (as a mum to an ADHD/Autistic child) but also as a Trainee Teacher, who is hoping to secure her NQT year in a specialist school for autistic children. I have a heightened awareness, a notebook full of ideas and confidence to have a go!
Our short courses are free to view and, therefore, not supported by a tutor. If you choose to print a certificate of achievement after completing the course, there is a small fee for non-members of our community.
