Families who have attended the course have told us:

“I have really enjoyed this course and the interaction with other mums and dads and the course leaders. Everyone has been really lovely and helpful. It has been good to see other people’s strategies and advice. I would definitely recommend this course.”

“Overall, I've learnt a lot about language and how to talk to our son. I have more knowledge on how to cope with various situations and behaviours - It's made me more mindful as a parent!”
