2019 Parent & Professional Workshops

8 January 2020
2019 Parent & Professional Workshops in Exeter 

‘A great source of practical support and encouragement, without a trace of judgement – I would definitely recommend these courses to any parent’ – Melissa Mitcheson

Caring for a child with behaviour support needs can be challenging and at times isolating. Our courses give parents and professionals a chance to learn strategies and techniques that have been used in professional practice and in the home with success. As well as group activities allowing you to meet others going through similar experiences and share ideas and support.

‘The strategies discussed have been a game changer for us and have given me the confidence to parent in the way that is right for my child, not everyone else’s ideals’ – Amy Flanagan
The training will take place at

The Jubilee Club
4 Main Road

There are parking facilities on site.

The ticket price includes the days training, teas & coffees, soft drinks and a selection of fruit and biscuits. Lunch is not included.

Professionals are expected to purchase a professional ticket and the lower ticket price is for parents only.

All courses will run from 9:30am until 2:30pm with the trainer or trainers being availible for a further hour set aside for specific questions.

Refunds can be issued up to 7 days before the course runs. However, eventbrite will take a small fee, usually a few pounds, so it will not be a full refund.
