Early Bird

Description

Service Description

Short breaks enable disabled children and young people to do many of the activities non-disabled children take for granted. They help them have fun, try new activities, gain independence and make friends.

Short breaks are one of the services most commonly requested by parents of disabled children. These services also offer parents and carers the much-needed break that they deserve from their usual caring responsibilities.

Additional Information

Additional Information

Early Bird is for parents whose child has received a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and is under the age of 7. Priority is given to parents of pupils attending Phoenix school. 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 appropriate behaviour in their natural environment. It also helps parents to establish good practice in handling their child at an early age, so as to pre-empt the development of challenging behaviours. The group runs on every Tuesday during term time in Autumn and Spring.
