Professional development courses

We can help you help parent carers

We understand parent carers, and we want to help you improve your confidence and skills supporting them. 

We can host all our courses for small or large groups, virtually as a webinar or workshop and of course in-person too. 

“Very  informative, lots of facts and information relatable to families I work with.”

New! FREE online workshops for professionals

Do you work with parents & carers of children with SEND?

We’re running a series of free online workshops.

Early identification and access to networks of support make a crucial difference to parents of disabled children. And for parents struggling to come to terms with concerns about their child’s development.

Our accessible and jargon-free courses will give you practical ideas  about how you can support disabled children and their families. We will skill you up to understand parents’ concerns and how best to help them.

Workshops take place over Zoom.

Online workshop programme

It’s not unusual for workers to feel out of their depth and unskilled when approaching parents. We address clear pathways of support for all concerned.

Our workshops aim to help professionals:
