Grace App training is now online in 3 short and easy to follow video lessons
Finding out you have a pupil, child or other family member who needs help with communicating can be very overwhelming. Believe me, I have been through it twice!
Whether you are a parent, significant carer, therapist or educator; it isn’t always easy to get training. When I was told that I had to “go off and learn pecs” in order to help my daughter it seemed like an impossible task. We were a newly diagnosed, newly arrived family with no support network; barely able to manage our kids’ and their needs ourselves, let alone expect our extended family to take over so I could go off and do a 2 day course. I did it, and it was very worthwhile but I have always felt there had to be a better way.
With resources stretched to the limit many people find themselves trapped in a cycle of needing help to be able understand and support their kid’s learning and therefore behaviour, and not being able to get away from home as their kid’s needs are too challenging.
So I am delighted to have the first 45 minutes of my “Guide to Grace App” workshop available to watch online. The nice people from CATTs Ireland have set up a web learning portal which you can sign in and access at your leisure and you even get a certificate of completion! (which can go towards your CEUs.)
All the courses (including mine) are here.
It’s a €5 to sign in but my portion of that goes to As I Am Ireland; an excellent organisation aiming to make the world more inclusive for Autism.
