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

The course will be facilitated by Becky Loveless and Sam Burkin from Autism Family Support Oxfordshire.  There will also be input from guest speakers, including a young adult on the autism spectrum.

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

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 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.

  • Parent/carers of children who are diagnosed on the autism spectrum.
