Time Out for Parents: Children with Special Needs Familiarisation Day

Train to run our specialist course to support and encourage parents and carers of a special needs child.

Who is it for?

This training is only available to our licenced facilitators and will take you through the materials and activities of the supportive and informal seven sessions.

Children with Special Needs aims to help parents build their child’s self esteem and develop good communication skills. It goes on to look at each child’s  development, ways to meet the needs of their child and how to set and stick to boundaries. It also explores what schools and other agencies can offer for children with special needs and their parents and how the wider family plays a part.

Have a look at sample pages of the facilitator manual and parent handbook.

You may be interested to know that we also run Children with Special Needs ASD familiarisation days.
