Cygnet Training

Posted 31/03/2017 : By: Sun Beams

As licensed practitioners Monica and Sue were delighted to present their first group of parents with their certificate of attendance after they completed the Cygnet core parenting programme.

A 6 week parenting programme providing the opportunity to gain understanding of their child/young person’s needs (5-18yrs) through skills, strategies and knowledge covering:
• Autism and diagnosis
• Communication and sensory issues
• Understanding and managing behaviour

We understand that being the parent/carer of a child or young person on the autistic spectrum can sometimes be isolating and challenging. With this in mind Monica and Sue completed Barnardo’s facilitator training and are now able to offer the Barnardo's Cygnet programme free to parents/carers of children attending Sunbeams Play.

They are also licensed to provide the additional sessions on Puberty, Sexual Wellbeing & Relationships; a 3 week programme for parents wanting to support their children/young people through this difficult stage and for young people to understand their own needs.

Please ask if you are interested in taking part or would like more information.
