Parent/Carer Workshops

Expand your autism toolkit

Learn from Irabina’s expert clinicians and therapists as they share their knowledge in this series of educational workshops. Available via teleconference and in-person at one of our sites, these workshops aim to empower parents and carers with an expanded autism toolkit that maximises support for individuals on the spectrum.

Equip yourself with practical solutions

As a parent or caregiver, no one has a greater impact on a person’s development than you. At Irabina, we also recognize that parents and carers are often very busy – your time is precious!

These workshops are designed to equip you with simple, evidence-based information and strategies that can be used in everyday life.

About our workshops

Across the year we offer a number of different workshops to support you wherever you are on your journey. 

Irabina workshops typically run for approximately two hours and cover a range of topics including: autism, communication, picky eating, play, intensive interaction and sensory regulation to name a few.

All workshops are available via teleconferencing, so you can attend from the comfort of your own space, or face to face, so you can meet others who are sharing similar experiences.

If there are any areas you’d like us to cover in the future, or something you would like to know more about, please contact us at [email protected] so we can be sure you are getting the information you find most useful.
