Parenting a Child with Autism
How do I help my child?
Everyone on the planet wants to be seen and heard, but how do you see and hear a child with autism? This workshop will help you see what is going on inside the child, under their confusing and often, challenging behaviours. To see through their eyes and feel what they are feeling.
I don’t know what to do!
As you develop your understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder and how that affects your child, you can come along side them in new ways. When you begin to relate to them, at their level of development, you can help them grow into the next stage, and the next.
I’m so worried about them!
Parenting your child in this way will often raise questions about our beliefs about parenting, and ourselves as parents. If you can make sense of this, your child will grow in ways that you can’t imagine…but ways that we have seen. We can introduce you to that vision.
