Beams works with other professionals and agencies to deliver a number of parent courses and workshops.
This is a course for parents of children with ASD aged between 5 – 17 years. The course runs for 6 weeks, is half a day per week, and covers:
- What is ASD?
- Sensory issues
- Understanding Behaviour
- Managing Behaviour-coping strategies
There is a follow-up session approximately 3 months later.
Please note that there is a waiting list for this course.
Multi-Agency ASD Evening Talks
The Multi-Agency Autism Group is a partnership including representatives from Beams, Health, Education, Voluntary agencies and parents. Their aim is to give families and carers information, confidence and skills for managing the children in their care.
The group runs evening talks in the local area. Topics include food, sensory issues, managing behaviour, the education perspective, the parent’s perspective and surviving Christmas and school holidays.
Due to recent staff changes we are currently updating arrangements for future talks. Further information will follow in the autumn term.
