Parent Awareness of Learning Disabilities Support Group
What is it?
PALS is a group for parents of children /Young People with a diagnosis of a Learning Disability. It consists of 5 weekly sessions, each 2 hours in length. The group is run by Psychology and The Children and Young People’s Learning Disability Nursing team. The group is for parents who would like a greater understanding of what it means for their child to have a Learning Disability.
Groups are organised around the age of the child, with parents of younger /older children grouped together. This allows discussion regarding different stages of development and provides an opportunity to connect with other parents who also have a child with a learning disability.
The group covers things that may help to improve your child’s everyday life including understanding communication, behaviour and anxiety. Support strategies are discussed to help your child.
