This course is designed for parents who have children with autism and want to learn how to be more effective communicators and help their children become more effective communicators too. I intend to share some great information with you during this introductory course about changing the way you think about communication and therefore changing your communication. There are five lessons that you will go through over 10 days:
1. Less is more
2. Processing time
3. Non verbal communication
4. Verbal communication
5. Opportunities and invitations
This course will allow you time to digest the information, reflect on it, observe and analyse your own communication / relationship.
Please do keep in mind that this course is an introductory level of communication and there is so much more to learn. However, with this information you can start to make changes on your own.
The course is not about doing something to your child or making your child do or say something. Instead it is about working on YOUR communication and this alone has an effect on your communication relationship with your child.
