Further information

EarlyBird programme is a three month parent programme combining group training sessions with individual home visits, where video feedback is used to help parents to combine theory with practice.

We offer the programme to parents whose child has a diagnosis of autism. We empower parents and carers to have an understanding of autism, developing strategies to pre-empt problem behaviours and or manage those that occur, structure interactions to develop communication. help establish good practice and encourage a consistent approach between home and school.

Parents are required to make self referral following diagnosis. Early Bird trainers will respond to referral and advise of next available course. Early Bird courses can run with a minimum of 4 families and a maximum of 6 families as licensed by the National Autistic society.
