Cygnet (developed by Barnardos)

CYGNET booking form 

This 6 session programme is designed for parents and carers of children and young people aged 5-18 with an autistic spectrum condition. The programme is designed to:

* To increase parents understanding of autistic spectrum conditions

* To help parents develop their knowledge on how a child on the autistic spectrum experiences the world and what drives their behaviour

* To guide parents through practical strategies they can use with children

* To direct parents to relevant ASD resources

* To give parents the opportunity to meet with other parents who have had similar experiences and to gain support and learn from each other

How to access the course:

Parents must refer themselves onto the course by calling or emailing Fosse Way School (01761 412198 or and asking to be put on the CYGNET waiting list. Once a vacancy is identified parents will then be contacted with a form to book themselves a place.

Sessions are for two hours and usually include up to 12 people (around 6 families). Each family can have up to two places. We expect that one person per family is a constant and attends all the sessions.

Childcare is not available, we ask that parents make their own arrangements.

(Supporting Parents of Autistic Children in the Early years.)

SPACE Booking Form

For parents of Pre-school children (0-4 years)

This 4 session programme is aimed at helping parents understand more about ASD and how they can best support their child.

During the course we cover:

* Understanding autism

* Communication and Language

* Behaviour, including temper tantrums, aggression and anxiety

* Daily living skills such as toileting, eating, sleeping and general self-help skills

* Sensory sensitivities

We aim to delve deep into Autism, how it affects our children, seeing differences rather than deficits. We aim to provide families with tips and techniques to support their children at home.

Childcare is not available.
