My Child and Autism Workshop
What to Expect
Early Days workshops are interactive and held in small groups.
We give families the opportunity to share ideas by providing time for you to chat with each other and voice any concerns you may have about your child in a safe environment.
We are an obligation-free and impartial service that can help you initiate positive discussions and advocate for both yourself and your child when dealing with service providers, early childhood services, schools, and health professionals.
You will be given the option to take notes during the session and to fill out a workbook about your child and family. Your workshop will be run by a highly skilled and experienced early childhood professional or therapist.
We also have a tailored My Child and Autism workshop for parents and carers of girls on the spectrum. For information on how to attend a My Child and Autism: Girls workshop, please view our workshop schedule.

Feedback From Parents
‘The workshops are really beneficial and a great chance to meet other parents who can relate to the things you go through on a day-to-day basis.’
‘Thank you for running these workshops. Very lovely to hear presenters refer to them as ‘our children’. Felt like a real level of care and compassion.’
