Getting off to
a good start

For Parents & Carers

Understanding your child’s brain

We work with parents, carers and families of children aged from 3 to 18 who are having a hard time managing their behaviour positively at home, at school and in the community.

If you want to find new ways of helping your child or teenager to manage their own behaviour, our programme could be just what you’re looking for.

The Empowerment Approach programme will teach you about the developing brain so that your child, you and family can understand what might be driving the behaviour.

Create pathways to independence

You will also learn practical solutions and simple tools to help you to support your child or teenager with issues such as:

  • Managing emotions and impulses
  • Controlling attention and dealing with distractions
  • Listening
  • Organising belongings
  • Managing time and completing tasks

“I am a lot calmer. I know that she’s not just being naughty – I understand now that her brain is working in a different way.” – Parent
