Autism and behaviours we find challenging

Tuesdays 26th April, 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th May, 7th June

9:30am – 12:00, online – Zoom

£40 per place

The closing date is Monday 28th March 2021


We will be looking at many aspects of challenging behaviour using both behaviour management and therapeutic approaches.

The course will be facilitated by Autism Family Support Oxfordshire with input from guest speakers.

The course will be centred on the needs of the family and will provide a warm and friendly environment so that we can share all our experiences of autism, both wonderful and difficult.

Please note that you are expected to attend all 6 sessions of the course. You will also need to have internet connection, a device that has a webcam (a desktop or laptop computer are best, but the course can be accessed on a tablet or mobile) and a private space so that you can access the course. We strongly recommend the use of headphones to ensure confidentiality.

Some group work is part of the course and participants will be asked to have their videos on.

Participants of this course MUST be:

    • Parents/carers who are diagnosed on the autism spectrum
    • Parents/carers who have made a referral to AFSO. Referral forms can be found here
    • Parents/carers who are experiencing challenging behaviour
