Are you a parent or carer who has a child awaiting assessment or who has recently (in the last year) been given a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder for your child? Bristol Autism Support has created this 6-week course especially for you – created by parents for parents.
How can you help your child? What benefits can you claim? How can you manage challenging behaviour? Who can help you with school issues? Over the course of six weeks, you will learn about all of these things and more, in the company of others like yourself.
The What Do I Do Now? course encompasses everything you need to know right now.
Each week we will cover, in depth, a topic that will help you to help your child, your family and yourself. The information is up-to-the-minute current and specific to where you live. You don’t need a diagnosis to attend this course. The course schedule looks like this:
Week 1: Autism parenting 101 – a general overview of autism and strategies to help your child right now
Week 2: Sensory issues / how to talk about autism and get the help you need
Week 3: Benefits and financial support
Week 4: Education issues and support
Week 5: Challenging behaviour
Week 6: Finding the ‘new normal’ – how to adapt your lifestyle to accommodate your child’s autism
