Difficulty attending a course due to cost, or childcare?

If you are a parent/carer of someone with additional support needs and are having difficulty attending a course due to your caring role, contact me and it may be possible to run a private session for your family unit in a setting, and at a time, convenient for you.


We also help to fund places on our courses for family members of those with ASN who may not otherwise be able to attend. Contact us for further details on these funded places.
