Parent Information Talks

Thanks to the generosity of governmental grant support we are delighted to be able to offer a series of informative talks for parents of Autistic children. These talks occur during the school holiday breaks. The purpose of these events is to give parents the benefit of time and insight from various experts to help them support and understand their child.

Talks are run free of charge and offer a staffed play area for children to wait while their parents attend.
