Cygnet – Parent autism awareness programme invite
Babcock LDP as licensed trainers will be offering access to this programme during this summer term, as hosting their usual parent autism awareness programme is not physically possible at this time
Is this course for me?
After a diagnosis parents and carers can have a lot of questions about autism and may feel isolated in managing their child’s needs.
Children’s needs also change over time, and information and advice received when a child is younger may need to be updated to be relevant for the child/young person today.
Attending Cygnet gives parents and carers an opportunity to develop their understanding of autism and look at practical solutions to managing social communication and behaviour difficulties.
How do I accept and access the programme?
Simply email LDP-LearnerSupport@babcockinternational.com to indicate you would like to accept the course access offer (using the same email you wish weekly web link sending to)
