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 both school sites; Eagle House (Mitcham) and Eagle House (Sutton), so do check where you need to be when you book your place.
