Autism in the home
Delivered by our in-house specialists and therapists, Eagle House Group is delighted to offer a regular rolling programme of free workshops throughout the school year. These workshops are packed full of ideas and will keep you up to date with the ‘latest thinking’ on how best to support your child or young person with autism; from older primary age through to secondary.
Designed to be interactive and practical, our team of speech & language therapists, occupational therapists and behaviour specialists have designed hour-long sessions to give ideas and strategies to help you cope at home. Open to all families, every workshop has a ‘problem solving session’ where you can discuss your specific issues and overcome any difficulties you and your family may be struggling with.
Our workshops are held at all school sites – Eagle House (Mitcham), Eagle House (Sutton) and Eagle House (Strawberry Lodge) so please do check where you need to be when you book your place.
Parent comments from previous ‘Getting Started’ Workshops:
PODD Parent Workshop
“This was so helpful and informative, I can’t wait to get practising !”
Really interesting, I am going to use past analysis to look at my child’s behaviour and will be using lots more visual strips.”
“It is such a relief talking things through with experienced staff and other parents.”
Come to our FREE workshops and have the opportunity to meet other parents/carers and to share experience and advice. Our rolling programme of autism workshops includes:
Autism: How do we communicate?
How does autism affect your child’s communication? How can you support communication and communication development? This is a practical session on speech and language therapy techniques you can use at home with your child plus time for questions and group discussion.
Making sense of sensory difficulties
Come and learn to recognise which sensory difficulties your child has and discover how they can affect their lives and their learning.
Our highly intactive and practical workshop not only looks at how to identify your child’s sensory issues, but also gives you some very useful coping strategies that you can start to use as soon as you get home.
What is Behaviour telling us?
In this workshop, we will be looking at challenging behaviour in young people with autism, how to investigate the root cause of their behaviour, and strategies to address them.
Keeping Children and Young People with Autism Safe
This workshop looks at current advice on personal safety, internet safety and appropriate social interaction and social media.
Parenting your Child with Autism
This workshop looks at parenting in relation to coming to terms with a diagnosis, the impact of autism on the family, siblings, and helping the wider family to understand autism.
Occupying your Child with autism during the School Holidays
This workshop will supply you with lots of ideas for hot summer days and rainy days during the school holiday. It will also support you in looking at structuring your holidays/ days with a change in routine and making them fun!
