Attention Autism at Home

An online Attention Autism training programme for parents.

Six hours of live training online with Gina Davies.

In this series of six workshops, you will learn how to successfully set up the Attention Autism programme in your home – you and your child will learn how to connect, get focused attention, keep it and share it.

We need to create lots of these times so you can help your child develop and learn.

The Attention Autism programme looks at ways to engage your child, build connections and communication and set up skills that work for life.

We will cover all 4 stages of the Attention Autism Programme, and discuss the ideas behind it, using real-life examples to show exactly how and why it works.

The training will be taught in four parts:

    • How the Attention Autism programme works
    • Getting set up
    • Running the 4 Stage Attention Autism programme
    • Planning for the future and keeping going

The Attention Autism Programme is designed for use with children who can talk and those who can not. In the online groups for the parents of children over 5 years the training is divided into a group for those who can talk and a group for those who don’t talk yet.

The need to broaden the children’s horizons to get the thinking and connections going is important for children of all abilities and ages and there is a great deal they can learn.

Perhaps you are wondering if your child is ready for the programme.

Although we appreciate that every child is unique, we would recommend giving it a go with any child over the age of 2.5 yrs-3 years old.

Please ensure that you book the correct course for your child as the course`s content is specifically designed for the various groups.

If a course is full then new courses will be scheduled soon.
