Our Speech and Language Therapists have developed a programme for parents called ‘More than Words’ to help children with social communication difficulties. The programme involves weekly sessions for parents to learn and develop strategies to support their children’s social communication skills. It would be particularly helpful for parents of children with diagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), possible ASD and children who struggle with friendships or social skills, such as turn taking.
The next ‘More than Words’ programme is planned for the summer term 2021. If you would be interested in taking part call the Speech and Language team on 0131 454 9544.
