Self-Support Pathway Workshops – FREE workshops and peer support for parents and carers of children between the ages of 5 and 16 years who are on, or have been on, an assessment pathway of their social communication need.

  • A rolling programme of themed training workshops which aim to inform and equip parents and carers with a better understanding of their children’s needs, and strategies to help support their children’s areas of difficulty.
  • Information marketplace events designed to enable parents and carers to quickly and easily access information and advice from a range of services and providers.
  • One-to-one follow up sessions offered where needed, following attendance at workshops, to further support parents and carers develop their understanding.
  • Signposting to other appropriate support services.
  • Support and advice from service co-ordinators in person, over the phone, or via email.
