What training is available? Our Amazing team of knowledgeable and highly skilled therapists can deliver parent and educational training, on understanding and supporting your child’s communication and feeding development.
Who is parent training aimed for? Parent training is aimed for all parents including other caregivers: from parents of infants and children who have just received a diagnosis and want to understand more about it and what can be done to help your child in the best possible way.

Caregivers who spend the most time with your child are also encouraged to attend e.g. helpers, grandparents etc.
