Positive Behaviour Support Workshops Autumn 2022

Skills for People will be running more Positive Behaviour Support workshops this Autumn in partnership with  Newcastle Gateshead NHS Clinical Commissioning Group.

These workshops are for family carers who have a child who is autistic and/or has a learning disability. If you are waiting for a diagnosis for your child you are also very welcome to attend.

They are run by family carers with lived experience and have a friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

The workshops focus on helping you to understand and support your child’s behaviour, particularly if their behaviour can be more challenging at times. We help parents to think about strategies and to come up with a plan that focuses on a good quality of life for your child and your family.


We are running Online and Face to Face sessions in the Autumn Term 2022.  These sessions are for Newcastle parent/carers.

Please note that you need to be able to attend all 3 online sessions or 2 face-to-face sessions.
