ASCEND Programme

ASCEND (Autism Spectrum Conditions – Enhancing Nurture and Development) is a support programme for parents of school-aged children.

It is designed to provide

  • A focus on providing clear information to parents about what an ASC is, how it changes a child’s understanding of the environment, how it affects the developing child and its implications for parenting.
  • A focus on maximizing the development of the child using constructive and positive day-to-day interventions.
  • An aim to equip parents with behaviour management skills that can be used across different situations specifically designed around an understanding of ASCs.
  • An ethos of empowerment, where families share their experiences and expertise with each other.
