Who should attend?

This workshop covers in depth the Autism Spectrum and Language Delays Parent Programme for parents of children ages 2–5 years old. Group leaders attending this training should have prior experience working with children on the Autism spectrum or their families. It is recommended that group leaders attending this training have previously attended the Basic Parent Group Leader Training and have experience running Incredible Years® groups. This workshop will train group leaders to deliver the Autism Spectrum and Language Delays Programme in a parent group setting. This new programme can be used as a stand alone, following the 14-16 session protocol for a group of parents all of whom have children on the Autism Spectrum or with language delays. It can also be used by group leaders delivering the Toddler or Basic Preschool IY Programs as a supplement if there are parents in the group with children on the Autism Spectrum or with language delays.

This is an intensive, practical training workshop over five half-days.  'Completion of training' certificates will be given to attendees who attend the full course, and all sessions must be attended.

There is an expectation that those who attend this training continue to work towards accreditation in the programme. Information regarding accreditation is provided at the workshop.
