PARENT & CHILD SUPPORT

We believe the best learning opportunities for a child comes from the parents. The support we provide is tailored to both the child's and the family's needs. It takes place at your home or community, and it is on-going.

We offer two types of parent & child support:

  • Parent & Child Interaction Programme

  • Social Stars social group

Parent & Child Interaction Programme

This is a 5-session programme aimed at equipping parents to teach their child 1-3 new skills, or replacing inappropriate behaviours. The programme teaches parents 5 simple steps called RAPID[I], a behavioural approach aimed at changing parental and child interactions through behaviour and environmental modification techniques.

Social Stars social group

We at HeadStart Speech & Behaviour Clinic are excited about the HeadStart Social Stars - family therapy groups. The group is for parents and their children aged 1-12 years old who may find socialising with other children challenging. Your child does not have to have autism spectrum condition to access this type support.

Social Stars Parent & Child Therapy is a 6 week programme aimed at working with families to provide the tools needed to be socially successful. The therapy is based on the RAPID[i] behavioural approach aimed at changing parental and child interactions through behaviour and environmental modification techniques.

The programme is inclusive in that parents and children attend sessions together. Each session is structured into a social group activity whereby parents and children make, draw or create things together in a group setting lasting 50 mins. During this time parents and children receive coaching from the BCBA on how to implement RAPID [I] behaviours with each-other.
