Incredible Years Autism and Language Delay Parenting Programme

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, this programme has been suspended. We will update this website page as soon as it is available again.

The Incredible Years Autism and Language Delay Programme supports parents and carers to understand their child’s development and how they can best support them.

The programme focuses on developing language and social skills and promoting children’s emotional and self-regulation, so helping them to develop positive relationships with others. Parents will discover different ways to support positive behaviour and manage challenging behaviour. They will also have the opportunity to meet other parents who have children of a similar age
