WORKSHOPS FOR PARENTS

Raising children with autism presents numerous challenges, and each family is grappling with its own distinct set of difficulties.


This is why we've developed a comprehensive session providing parents of children with  autism the necessary tools and guidance to foster connections with their kids, enhance behaviour, and witness their children flourishing.


Our parent program equips you with skills to manage and prevent inappropriate behaviours. You'll learn to handle disruptions and improve communication with your child. We'll also guide you in supporting your child's independence, life skills, and play abilities. Overcoming challenges related to autism may seem daunting, but our training provides tools to help your child develop these crucial skills. We're here to assist you in giving your child the best possible support for their growth.

The program will help parents in

Quality Time and Self-Care
  • Tailor your approach to dedicate positive time to your child, mend relationships, and prioritise self-care as well.

Active Engagement and Empathy
  • Customise your approach to capture your child's attention and ensure they comprehend your expectations. Avoid misinterpreting sporadic engagement and understanding as a lack of motivation or capability.

Encouraging Positive Attention for Motivation
  • Customise your approach to reinforcing positive behaviour. Acquire the skills to motivate your child to meet appropriate expectations and engage in independent play and work.

Self-Motivation and Learning from Experiences

Utilising Ignoring and Timeout Strategies

Taking Breaks for Empathy and Self-Reflection

TRAINING FOR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTES
Why Training for School Staff Matters with Autism Students

To help students with autism succeed in both schoolwork and social interactions, it's crucial for school staff to have special training. This training gives teachers a better understanding of autism spectrum disorder. With this knowledge, teachers can create teaching methods and learning plans that match the various ways autistic students learn and behave.

Since autism is different for each person, staff need training in customizing instruction. This means teachers can adjust how they teach to fit the needs of each student. Doing this improves learning because it considers the unique needs and strengths of every student. With this special training, teachers can give personalized support, making sure they create a caring and inclusive environment where all students can do well.

CORPORATE TRAINING

Parents raising children with autism face significant challenges impacting their well-being and job performance, including heightened anxiety, depression, substantial treatment costs, increased absenteeism, and a pronounced lack of mental health services. 

 

According to the National Business Group on Health, 46% of caregivers express a need for more assistance, while 40% struggle to balance work and family duties due to the absence of an autism cure and uncertainties about their child's future. This results in approximately five hours of weekly absenteeism. Employers are crucial in providing understanding and meaningful support to parents in these unique challenges.
