Cygnet Parenting Programme

*we are not currently delivering any face to face courses*

 

Cygnet parenting is a specialist programme designed for parents/carers of children and young people with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The Barnardo’s Cygnet Autism programme is a 7-week course for parents of children aged 5 and over with Autism.

Parents of children with Autism face all the usual positive and difficult challenges of parenting, and quite a few more with the autistic population being a vulnerable group. Cygnet combines practical strategies and support for parents specifically around Autism. It aims to empower parents/carers and to increase their understanding of the strengths and difficulties associated with ASD.
Sessions include:
• Autism and diagnosis
• Communication
• Sensory issues
• Understanding and managing behaviour
