Learning support programmes for parents of autistic children

We provide two learning support programmes for parents and carers of children with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum.

The programmes provide guidance on dealing with young autistic children. They were created by the National Autistic society and are regularly monitored by them.


The EarlyBird programme is run over a 3-month period and consists of group sessions and home visits.

EarlyBird Plus

The EarlyBird Plus programme is for parents of children aged 4 to 8 years 11 months. It consists of eight group sessions and two home visits.
