Helping Your Child Sleep (24 August, 10am – 12pm)

A child who does not sleep well can affect the whole family. Many children have sleep issues, but this is much more common for children with additional needs no matter their age. This workshop will explore some of the issues around sleep and will look at different ways of supporting your child, raising awareness of the importance of sleep and its effect on the family.

Parent Carer Wellbeing (5 September, 10am – 12pm)

Stress can be a huge factor for families with disabled children and young people. This online workshop will look at what causes you stress and how you cope with it at present, as well as suggest new strategies to manage stress and improve your own wellbeing. You will also have the opportunity to hear other parents’ experiences and share as much or as little of your story as you wish.

Helping Your Child Manage Anxiety (8 September, 10am – 12pm)

This workshop will explore what anxiety is, how to identify its signs, how it can make you feel, and the different types of anxiety a child may experience. We will then cover strategies to help you recognise and manage your child’s anxiety.
