Mother of a 14 Year Old

"I think this is the best course any parent can do. Safe environment.. non judgemental... allowed to voice my concerns and worries to other parents who are going through the very same journey. Professionals in the field of autism giving you advice and clarity... making you feel empowered about your child. You leave the course feeling so positive.  An absolute gamechanger for our family. My only regret is that I didn't do it earlier". 

Parents of a 6 Year Old Girl

"The insights were so useful... we know that all autistic people experience autism differently, but it was so valuable to learn about it in more detail. It made me think about how we were feeling. Discussing autism informally with other parents going through similar stuff not only lightened the load but also gave us lots of tips. Lorraine was also so full of knowledge and put is across so well. Lastly, getting the validation that some of what we already have in place is probably doing some good".
