Please note that since the Covid-19 lockdown started, except for a short reprieve, Space 2 Be Me stopped its face 2 face support groups, clubs, events and holiday activities. We have worked hard to adapt and stay in touch with our families. We now have a range of virtual support groups, clubs and family challenges and events; we have virtual workshops on a range of issues requested by our members and we are running virtual cygnet courses, for the core cygnet parenting programme, the sibling and puberty modules. You can find out more by emailing email@example.com.
Our family support service is still available via telephone, zoom and email – contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss what support is available to parents and carers.
From time to time throughout the year we run parent workshops around topics of interest to our families.
These could be topics related to disability, such as dealing with challenging behaviour, ADHD, Sleep, sensory play, etc or from time to time we run workshops that are just for fun.
We have a workshop coming up in March 2021 – click here to find out more
We have an annual wreath making workshop at Christmas time and during the year we run other workshops in response to requests from parents.
The Cygnet programme
Please note: we are running virtual cygnet courses: for the core cygnet parenting programme, the sibling and puberty modules. You can find out more by emailing email@example.com.
We run the Cygnet programme.
This programme is designed for parents and carers of children and young people aged 7-18 with an autistic spectrum condition.
The programme is designed to:
- increase parents understanding of autistic spectrum conditions
- help parents develop their knowledge on how a child on the autistic spectrum experiences the world and what drives their behaviour
- guide parents through practical strategies they can use with children
- direct parents to relevant ASC resources
- give parents the opportunity to meet with other parents who have had similar experiences and to gain support and learn from each other
It’s delivered over six, two and a half – three hour sessions followed by a seventh sessions a few weeks after the end of the course.
All will be held from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
All will be held at:
The Space 2 Be Me office, Howard de Walden Centre, Bluett Street, Maidstone, Kent ME14 2UG
