Cygnet Parent Programme

We are currently running an online version of the Cygnet Parent Programme.  This covers the 5 core information sessions which are detailed below on the attached flyer. For more information or to be added onto the Cygnet waiting list, please contact us.

Please note that we are not currently delivering the additional sessions on puberty, sexual wellbeing and relationships online.  If you would like to attend these sessions in the future, please contact us to register your interest. You can only attend the additional sessions once you have completed the core Cygnet programme. Please keep checking the website for further updates. 

 

Parents and carers can complete the Cygnet Parent Programme Application Form to book onto the Cygnet Parent Information Sessions, if you are the parent/carer of a child/young person aged between 6 to 18 years of age with a confirmed diagnosis of autism still in education.  

Cygnet includes 5 core weekly information sessions, and 1 or 2 additional sessions where you can find out more about Autism and learn about strategies to support your child or young person.  

These sessions are run by Educational Psychologists and Parent Support Advisors from Enfield Advisory Service for Autism in a supportive and confidential group.
