Incredible Years Autism and Language Delay Parenting Programme

The 11 week 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.

A creche will be available.
