How to book on activities?

The Empower project is now using the online Eventbrite booking system.

From the link below you can enrol on any of our courses. We hope this will make the registration process for all the Empower courses relatively straightforward.

We have listened to parent’s feedback on evaluation forms and have booked in some new topics for 2018,

Sleep issues have been identified as causing a range of difficulties and the project has engaged Peat NI and facilitator Suzanne Brook to carry out a number of sessions

Suzanne will look at:

Basic science of sleep

- Tips on how to implement a sleep improvement plan

- Guidance on addressing common sleep issues such as:

Settling independently, taking a long time to fall asleep, fears, frequent waking, early rising

Peat NI will focus on:

Many individuals on the autism spectrum have difficulties regulating their sleep patterns. Some individuals find it difficult to get over to sleep, sleep without a parent beside them, or may get up many times throughout the night impacting on their behaviour the next day. This workshop will give practical strategies for many of the common sleep problems that parents/carers can attempt in their own home.

We also have a session on Bullying

Workshop content:

- Define bullying, but also consider other ways of seeing a conflict situation

-How to resource our children to deal with the situation.

-Know how to prepare for a meeting at school.

And an introductory session to Makaton which will teach basic everyday useful Makaton signs and symbols and how they can be used practically.

Our FREE training workshops can be booked on our online system.

This enables us to allocate slots on all our training programmes and for us to show our funders the numbers taking part in activities.
