Parents and Carers

Breaking Down Barriers Course

The Breaking Down Barriers course is ideal for parent/carers and relatives, who have either recently received a diagnosis, or who would like to learn more about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and/or Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC). Over seven sessions, this interactive and practical course will give you a comprehensive insight into your child’s condition, your legal rights as a parent/carer and how to manage the often challenging behaviours the ASC and ADHD can cause.

You will build upon your existing strengths and learn new strategies to improve your child’s self-esteem and enhance your family relationships

Really glad I came, there were lots of ideas given to me and now I just don’t feel so alone

I was anxious about coming but all the information and advice was amazing and I always felt very welcomed.

I can’t thank you enough for helping me understand ASC and ‘why’- but most of all for being able to see my child beam and smile and be happy with the changes we made, as I now understand.
