Free online course for parents and carers of children with autism

Are you a parent or caregiver of a child with autism?

Would you like to cope better, feel more in control of your emotions and be more resilient?

It is important for parents to stay connected, even more so during this time of social isolation.

We are offering free online Hope Programme, a 6-week online group self-management programme for parents and caregivers of children with autism to help you cope with life during lockdown – to feel more in control and more resilient.

Each week the course covers topics like:

  • managing stress
  • smarter goal setting
  • gratitude
  • character strengths
  • physical activity
  • eating well
  • coping with fatigue
  • practicing mindfulness
  • communication and relationships

The course includes quizzes, worksheets, audio and video materials, interactive activities and social networking via email and forums. There will also be a live mindfulness session and opportunity for the group to come safely together online. You will be supported throughout by trained facilitators.

The course can be accessed from PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. It takes upto 2 hours to complete each weekly session, which you can complete at any time which is convenient for you.

We delivered a pilot course last year with a group of parents and many found the course helped them to feel better with their child’s diagnosis and family life.
