Autism West Midlands Update – May 21
We have some great webinars coming up and there’s still time to book!
Rising to the Challenge
Our “flagship” series of workshops for parent carers starts again this term on webinar and Zoom – we hope to be back face to face in the autumn!
This FREE six session course is for parents / carers who want a better understanding of their child’s autism and learn about strategies that may help and support them. (Children do not need to have a diagnosis). Each one-hour webinar is followed by an optional Zoom session to explore the day’s presentation in more detail and ask questions.
All dates are Fridays at 9.30am-10.30pm for webinars and 11.00am to 12.00pm for Zooms, starting from 14th May. More info and to book at this link https://autismwestmidlands.org.uk/events/rising-to-the-challenge-2021-2/
