Sample material from the Parent Education Programme, entitled “Positive approaches to autism”, can now be viewed from the Equity and Social Inclusion through Positive Parenting (ESIPP) project website.
Materials can be viewed in four languages (English, Croatian, Macedonian and Greek). The training is designed to support understanding of autism and help nurture a range of strategies that can be implemented to help address some of the many needs these children and their families face.
As part of the project, a series of multiplier events are foreseen in order to provide opportunities for parents, professionals, policy-makers and other stakeholders to feed into the development of the model and curriculum and to present the developing model, curriculum and materials. The first of these events was held in Zagreb (Croatia) on March 13 and saw the participation of more than 100 stakeholders.
Autism-Europe is one of the partners of the ESIPP project, which focuses on offering education and training for parents of children on the autism spectrum. Running from September 2015 to August 2018, the project is funded by the European Union’s Erasmus + Programme.
