Our free training about meetings is running in Barnstaple, Ivybridge and Okehampton this autumn – book your place now!

“This is the best training I have been on as a parent carer, everyone should be offered it after diagnosis.”

Feedback from parents who have been on this course is always really positive. It aims to help you get more out of the meetings you have with professionals, whether that’s in school, nursery or college. Full of real life examples, top tips and parent led strategies it’s a great way to feel more confident and better prepared for meetings.  Using film clips based on real school meetings and discussion, you’ll learn about ways to make meetings better for everyone, such as how to:
