Training courses:

EarlyBird (under five years) and EarlyBird Plus

(ages four-eight) are support programmes for

parents and carers, offering advice and guidance

on strategies and approaches for dealing

with young autistic children.


Unique ways

A parent-carer led organisation supporting disabled children and their families, helping them to lead ordinary lives. Their goal is to make sure that the voices of parent carers and their families are heard.

We provide a broad range of services for parent carers, from training courses and Independent Supporters to social events, focus groups and discounts on family days out! We don’t restrict our services based on whether your child has a diagnosis or not, and instead work with anyone who feels they need our help.
