Parent Training

We provide a range of training programmes and workshops for any parent who has a preschool child that meets our criteria, as well as a number of one day courses focusing on specific issues. Our courses are either on a week night or a weekend at our centres in London and Stirling or can be locally based within a community centre.

We cover a range of issues such as understanding autism in the early years, understanding Pivotal Response Therapy (theory and practical), developing communication, understanding and dealing with challenging behaviour, understanding sensory issues and developing interaction through play. We focus on empowering parents to work confidently with their child at home, and target practical areas such as toileting and food issues.

The course aims to empower parents to better understand their child’s strengths and challenges and work together with their therapy team to optimise all opportunities for learning in the home.

Fees for distance courses vary according to venue and location, and are advertised regularly below and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. If you have a specific request for a course in your area please email us on hello@blueskyautism.com
