Cygnet work shops - supporting parents with children on the autistic spectrum

In 2023 we offered a seven week course to EYFS parents, and a selection of other parents.

The course covered a range of topics including what is autism, sensory issues, communication, and understanding and supporting behavior.

We had a 70% attendance rate. A significant number of parents rated the Cygnet course as excellent.

We plan to run Cygnet again for reception and new parents of Children in Year 1 to Year 3, in Spring 2024.

Some comments from the parent course evaluation forms:

“It was a positive experience, was nice to meet and get together with other parents. Always good to learn, can never know too much”

“I found the STAR approach most helpful as it helped my reaction to be more beneficial to my son”

 “This programme was instrumental in helping me meeting other parents and exchanging strategies and tips.”

The Home School Coordinator will make sure that you are aware of what is on offer for you and your child each term.
