Parent Webinars

We are inviting parents of autistic children to join our free online webinars, where they can learn about an aspect of life bringing up an autistic child, and have an opportunity to ask questions to our experienced therapists.

Thanks so much for your patience:  our webinars have been paused for a while but we're looking to see what we can do to get them started again soon.  In the meantime, please feel free to browse our selection of recorded webinars, and watch this space for more details.
