The NAS EarlyBird Programme is a parent-training programme run by the National Autistic Society in the UK.
It combines group training sessions for parents with individual home visits when video feedback is used to help parents apply what they learn, whilst working with their child.
Parents have a weekly commitment to a three-hour training session or a home visit, and to ongoing work with their child at home.
