Parent & Carer Training

ADD-vance provides a range of parent training courses and workshops across Hertfordshire. Our parent training ranges from our full 6 week Time Out courses to our focused 2 or 4 hour workshops. The vast majority of our courses are free, we do occasionally run paid-for workshops when demand is especially high but these are always well labelled and there is no chance you could accidentally register to a paid course without realising!

All our training is provided by two experienced and fully qualified trainers. As with all our staff, our trainers are also parents of children affected by ASD/ ADHD and bring both technical knowledge and parental experience with them. We do our best to cover all areas of Hertfordshire, as well as include a range of days and time to allow as many people to access the service as possible. We even run specific Dads’ courses from time to time 

Our parent training includes the following topics:

  • Time out for ADHD and ASD – 6 week course
  • Understanding Autism
  • Understanding ADHD
  • Managing Anger & Anxiety
  • Understanding Sensory Needs
  • Autism in Girls
  • Writing Social Stories
