This online parent and professional training is one of 15 online inter-related classes scheduled from September 19 to September 30.

Social Communication Therapy Training takes place online from the 25th till the 30th September 2022, 4pm - 5.30pm GMT.

Young children with autism and speech delay present with the social communication difficulties being one of the core deficits in autism. They need intensive stimulation in a naturalistic environment as well as in a clinical setting that is provided by a trained parent/guardian or an early interventionist. With the right intervention as early and as intensive as possible, children can make significant developmental gains in the area of social communication, social engagement, play skills, language & communication - the areas that are a precursor for the future successes in social & emotional development. To meet the needs of the young children aged from birth to the age of 6, the Social Communication therapy training has been developed.


1 - After learning effective ways to help your child with ASD, your feelings of competence and optimism about your child’s future will increase

2- You will learn how to set higher expectations for your child

3- After being more competent in helping your child effectively, your stress level will decrease and you will find more time for leisure and recreation

4- Your child will get more hours of therapy, what means greater outcomes

5- You will learn to use the daily situations to teach ‘’spontaneously’’ what will help your child to better generalize the skills, as opposed to him/her learning those skills only with specialists.

This online programme can be highly successful for parents in helping their children develop social communication skills and use them spontaneously, once parents stick to the guidance and carry out the gradual steps using the right techniques at the right time.

This online training on How To Deliver Social Communication Therapy as Early Intervention is divided into 5 ninety minute blocks in 5 days, to allow for the most effective use of the training time while having your questions answered by a an expert SEN teacher who is an ASD therapist, an ASD education & behaviour consultant and a mother of an ASD child.

This training is for you if you want to get important knowledge on how to shape your practical teaching skills. Additional questions you may have can be addressed via email, a live chat during the course or during your 1-1 online consultations. During your online training on How To Deliver Social Communication Therapy as Early Intervention to young ASD Learners, you will find out about:

Importance of developing social communication skills from the early age - 0-6 years of age

How to gradually implement very useful techniques in a naturalistic setting that will boost your child's social engagement, play skills, imitative play, language and communication - the crucial skills throughout the life span and what disadvantage it is if the child's social communication skills are not addressed at the early stages

This specialised series of parent and professional trainings is a reply to a few aspects in 2022:

constantly increasing number of children diagnosed with autism and other neurological challenges

an overwhelming lack of appropriate services for SEN learners

lack of appropriate training in the evidence-based practices for teachers and special needs assistants working in pre-schools, primary, post-primary and special schools across Ireland

lack of appropriate parent training to best help their children at home.

The aim of the training is to demonstrate to the course participants how important it is to be skilled at applying specialised evidence-based techniques to provide effective and targeted intervention in the classroom, the clinic centre and at home.The main goal of this training is to prepare parents and professionals to conduct a well matched and a highly complex intervention that will be inclusive of all aspects of human functioning and the child development.
