The Greater Manchester Autism Consortium (GMAC) Parent Seminar Facilitator team have developed two FREE online seminars for parents of children and young people with autism.
The two seminars are Managing Anger and Sensory Needs. Both are aimed at parents of 5-16 year olds and can be accessed at https://www.autismgm.org.uk/parent-seminar-resources
The seminars are split into 4 sections to try and make it easier to access when you have a few minutes. Once you have watched the seminars, parents/family members can book onto the Webinars. The webinars are run as a live virtual meeting on MS Teams, facilitated by the parent seminar facilitators and will refer to the seminar materials and involve interactive discussion and exercises. There will be no more than 6 parents booked on to allow for time for discussion.
There are also booklets on the webpage that you can download and print off. These resources will be referenced in the webinars.
The GMAC team can offer support to people who are unsure about accessing the virtual webinar, including joining instructions and an offer to test the connection so please do not be put off if you have not had chance to access virtual seminars or training before.
Below are some screenshots of how the seminars look on the GMAC website:
