Through our courses and workshops, parents are able to share and reflect on their experiences and concerns. We recognise that one size does not fit all, so our sessions are semi-structured, ensuring that parents feel listened to and valued, with courses being built to their specific needs. Parents are able to leave with a deeper understanding of their children with a set of practical strategies to use at home, tailored to the individual family.
We are both accredited parenting practitioners and have completed evidence based parenting programmes including Parenting Positively, The Solihull Approach, Millpond Sleep Training, Positive Parenting (which includes Time Out for Parents) and the TEACCH approach, recognised by the National Autistic Society. We work collaboratively with many different organisations including Children Centres; Early Years Teams and settings; primary and secondary schools; home tutor groups; charities; parent support and additional needs groups.
Our parenting courses cover a range of topics including parents self esteem and confidence, understanding the difficulties of being a parent, the importance of time spent with your child, understanding differing parenting styles, realistic expectations and managing different types of challenging behaviours. We offer courses for parents who have children and young people who have additional needs. We include a full evaluation for all of our courses, focusing on outcomes.
Our workshops cover a range of topics including:
- Managing tantrums
- Fussy eating
- Eating issues for children with additional needs
- Supporting young people in a digital world
- Managing anxiety and building resilience
- Understanding anxiety for children and young people with Autism and ADHD
- Toilet training
I was extremely happy with their services and assistance, helping my children to come to terms with our separation and pending divorce. They were recommended to me by another family and I would highly recommend them.
Fantastic course content, fantastic facilitators. Acceptance, understanding, support from rest of group and facilitators. Tips and techniques I wouldn’t have thought of. BRILLIANT
A great fun course, very informative, interesting and helped me review my setting, my practice and what I need to change.
Good communication between course tutors and participants and run at the right pace. Tutors were knowledgeable and able to give different perspectives.
We are not currently running any staff training, however, if you would like to arrange online training for your staff contact us for details.
