Information for parents/carers who would be interested in signing up for workshops led by Somerset’s Autism and Communication team.
The new sessions provide a series of workshops (some online and some in person) covering a range of topics relating to neuro diversity, but also a series of workshops on wider themes that parent carers have told us would be useful, including:
  • Emotional based school avoidance
  • Establishing routines and using visuals
  • Helping your child with sleep difficulties
  • Social stories
  • Managing behaviour that challenges
  • Helping your child through transition
  • Helping your child manage their anxiety
  • Helping your child understand the changes that come with growing up
  • Understanding sensory differences
  • Supporting communication through play

Please see below the ‘Wise up Booklet 2023/24’ which gives an overview of all the sessions taking place throughout the year and details of how parent carers can book a space to attend. Also below is a flyer for the up-coming neuro developmental workshops taking place through October, November and December.  

All information is available online on the Somerset Parent Carer Forum website –
