Advice & Understanding Autism Sessions
Advice Sessions are one-to one contact offering advice and guidance to parents and other family members around autism. We offer a listening ear and provide information on strategies that may help. Advice sessions take place in Birmingham, Shropshire, Solihull, Walsall, Dudley, Sandwell and Wolverhampton.
All of our advice clinics are advertised through our website events section. Booking is via our helpline team on 03030300111. Appointments last for 45 minutes. Longer sessions can be booked if required.
Understanding Autism Sessions
We also offer free 'Understanding Autism' sessions for parents and unpaid carers. These sessions provide basic understanding of autism and behaviours related to autism.
In these sessions, we:
- Discuss strategies
- Discus behaviours and possible causes
- Provide examples of resources and visual aids with instructions on how they are used
All sessions are interactive and tailored to the audience. We use evaluations to assess what people have learned.
