Cygnet (developed by Barnardos)

This 5/6 week programme is designed for parents and carers of children and young people aged 5-18 with an autistic spectrum condition. The programme is designed to:
* To increase parents understanding of autistic spectrum conditions
* To help parents develop their knowledge on how a child on the autistic spectrum experiences the world and what drives their behaviour

* To guide parents through practical strategies they can use with children
* To direct parents to relevant ASD resources
* To give parents the opportunity to meet with other parents who have had similar experiences and to gain support and learn from each other

How to access the course:
Parents must refer themselves onto the course by calling or emailing Fosse Way School (01761 412198 or and asking to be put on the CYGNET waiting list. Once a vacancy is identified parents will then be contacted with a form to book themselves a place.

We aim to deliver at least 3 SPACE and 3 CYGNET programmes a year dependent on need.
Sessions are for two hours and usually include up to 12 people (around 6 families). Each family can have up to two places. We expect that one person per family is a constant and attends all the sessions.

Childcare is not available, we ask that parents make their own arrangements.
Dates of next course can be found here
