Opportunity for Individualised Feedback:

If you have particular concerns about your child in the areas covered by the next webinar or any of the upcoming ones, you would be welcome to send in a very short video (up to 2-3 mins) of your child, which our therapists can review in advance of the webinar.

Our therapists are trained and very skilled in using such videos to help parents understand more about the dynamics of their relationships with their children, and suggest improvements. 

This would enable you to receive feedback on:

  • Your child's specific social and emotional abilities and challenges
  • How you and your child communicate most successfully with one another
  • Ways to support or "activate" your child's development in everyday interactions    

Please send any videos to webinars@transformingautism.org - If they are too big to attach, you can use a website like WeTransfer to send them to us along with a message.

Please note, that if you do send us videos, you will also be accepting that these may be used during the webinars, and that these webinars will be posted to our website and Youtube channel.
