The aim of the group is to provide support, share ideas and a platform for parents to ask questions.   Please note, this webinar is for parents only and will deal with the Theory of ASD from a parenting perspective and not a school perspective.  Therefore, we would appreciate if SNA /Teachers did not book a place on this support webinar.  This group will meet every 4/6 weeks.
