Supporting Children in Kent with Special Educational Needs and Disability

Training Courses for Parents

The Cygnet Course

Several times a year we run a Cygnet parenting programme for parents and carers of children and young people with Autism Spectrum Condition.

The aims of the course are to:

  • Develop knowledge & understanding of the way your child sees the world
  • Learn strategies & techniques to support your child
  • Share your parenting journey with others who are experiencing a similar journey

As demand for the programme is high, we give priority to parents of children who already have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Condition.

Please see our leaflet for details of when and where the next Cygnet course is available and how to book on to the course.

Makaton Courses

One of our Specialist Teachers, Gemma Elliott, is a Regional Makaton Trainer and offers a range of Makaton courses. These courses are open to parents and professionals and run over 2 or 3 days. They are very popular and enjoyable.

Please check our training calendar for the next available course.

Happy, friendly and supportive delivery of the course helped us to feel comfortable...The best course I have been on for many a year
