Parent Awareness Programme for Autism Spectrum
What is it?
PAPAS is a group for parents of children aged 3 to 16 years with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder which is run over 6 weekly sessions, each 2 hours in length with a short 10 minute break. The group is run by Psychology and Speech and Language Therapy.
The group is for parents who would like to gain a greater understanding of how their child is experiencing the world.
Groups are organised around the age of the child, with parents of younger/older children grouped together and provides an opportunity to connect with other parents that also have a child with autism
The group covers things that may help to improve your child’s everyday life including adapting the sensory world, adjusting our communication and managing behaviour.
