Parent Workshops

The Autism Spectrum Team runs regular parent workshops for parents of children who have received a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Condition.  These consist of three sessions

  1. an overall introduction to autism
  2. a selection of themed workshops
  3. an opportunity for a one off individual consultation

The themed workshops cover a range of topics including:

  • social communication and relationships
  • behavioural aspects including eating and sleeping, mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • resources and strategies to try

All participants are given a handbook to refer to during the course and keep on completion of the course.

The Autism Spectrum Disorder Assessment Team (ASDAT) carries out diagnostic assessments of school age children in Cornwall. They have close links with the Autism Spectrum Team and inform us of families where a child has newly received a diagnosis of autism. This is so that we can invite their parents to our workshops.

Additionally parents may self-refer to our workshops by filling out the Parent Workshop enquiry form or contacting a member of the area team in which they live.
