EARLYBIRD PROGRAMME: The National Autistic Society

The EarlyBird programme is for parents whose child has received a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder and is aged under five. 

The programme aims to support parents in the period between diagnosis and school placement, empowering and helping them facilitate their child’s social communication and behaviour in their natural environment. It also helps parents to establish good practice in supporting their child at an early age.

It will help you understand your child’s autism; get yourself into your child’s world, make contact, and find ways to develop interaction and communication; and and develop understanding of your child’s behaviour and how to use structure to support them.

STAND North Wales CIC have two licensed staff members who are able to deliver the programme to parents, funding dependant.
