Managing challenging behaviours is a common concern for parents of children with autism. SENtre's online courses offer comprehensive guidance on understanding the 'why' behind these behaviours. Our modules are designed to help parents and carers interpret signs, establish routines and employ positive reinforcement strategies, significantly reducing stress for the entire family. By focusing on individual triggers and responses, our courses equip parents with the tools for successful behavioural management, ensuring a calmer, more structured environment conducive to your child's well-being and development.

Toilet Training

Toilet training an autistic child can present unique challenges, but with the right strategies, it's more than achievable. SENtre's courses provide specific guidance on toilet training older children with autism, addressing common hurdles with patience and expertise. Our step-by-step modules help parents and carers establish toilet routines, recognise readiness cues and handle setbacks positively. With our help, toilet training becomes much less stressful, promoting confidence and independence in your child.

Motivation and Rewards

Understanding and harnessing your child's motivation can revolutionise their learning journey. At SENtre, our courses delve into the heart of what drives children with autism, employing positive reinforcement techniques that celebrate every success, no matter how small. We coach parents on how to identify their child's unique motivators, be they a favourite activity, toy or food, and effectively use them to encourage behavioural changes or skill acquisition. Our strategies not only enhance learning but also foster a joyful, rewarding environment at home. Discover more about tapping into your child’s potential through our autism training courses for parents.

Teaching Academics

Every child has the potential to thrive academically. SENtre’s dedicated modules focus on breaking down academic lessons into manageable segments, making learning more accessible and less overwhelming. We cover a range of strategies, from establishing a structured learning environment to using visual aids, all aimed at enhancing concentration and comprehension. Our approach isn't just about traditional education, it's about equipping your child with the skills necessary for lifelong learning. Engage with our autism training courses for parents to transform challenges into milestones in your child’s educational journey.

Speech Therapy

Effective communication is often a challenge for children with autism, but it's a hurdle that can be overcome with targeted speech therapy. SENtre's online courses introduce parents and carers to speech-enhancing techniques, from non-verbal communication aids to verbal exercises, fostering clearer expression for your child. We believe in creating a world where every child, verbal or non-verbal, can communicate their needs, desires and emotions. Unlock this world for your child with SENtre’s parental help for autistic children in the UK.

Increasing Focus

Maintaining attention can be a complex task for children with autism. SENtre's courses are designed to assist parents and carers in understanding and enhancing their child's focus. Through structured activities and proven concentration strategies, we guide you in creating an environment that minimises distractions and maximises engagement. Our approach isn't just about immediate results, it's about nurturing a sustained ability to focus, crucial for learning and development. Our techniques offer help for autistic children in the UK by fostering attention and curbing impulsivity.

ABA Therapy

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a key foundation in autism training courses for parents and carers. SENtre's online platform demystifies ABA, offering comprehensive insights into how positive reinforcement can help children gain skills. From understanding the basics to implementing advanced techniques, our ABA therapy guidance empowers parents and carers to apply these strategies in everyday scenarios.

Our SENtre Home service offers ABA tutors for one-on-one therapy sessions in your own home.

Therapeutic Activities

Therapeutic activities, especially those focused on sensory enhancement, are vital in supporting children with autism. SENtre's courses delve into activities that stimulate the senses, helping manage sensitivities and enhancing perception. These guided interactions aid in regulating emotions and behaviours, crucial for children facing sensory processing challenges. Our suggestions are not just theoretical, we provide practical setups for sensory-friendly spaces at home, ensuring comfort and safety.
