Free support for parents
Avalon has partnered with Parents Plus to support parents of young people with a learning disability.
We are offering free, virtual training sessions to parents, guardians and carers of young people between the ages of 12 and 19, providing supportive tools at this crucial stage of their child’s development
The course will help you support young people to:
- learn social skills and build friendships
- deal with puberty and sexuality
- gain confidence and self-esteem
- be more independent
It will also offer you a supportive environment, meeting parents of other children with additional needs to get tips and advice on:
- personally coping and managing stress
- dealing with the challenges of adolescence
- supporting the needs of your other children
- managing challenging behaviour
This is a free, seven week course, which will take place from November 2022 (date tbc). Each session will last 2 hours, and as well as the course content, families will be encouraged to use the sessions as an open forum and to learn from one another.
If you are a parent, guardian or carer who would like to find out more, or sign up for the sessions, please get in touch with Leanne Anderson either by telephone – 07736 272855 or by email – firstname.lastname@example.org
