Triple P (Disabilities) aims to make parenting children with disabilities easier. It offers suggestions and ideas on positive parenting to help you to promote your child’s development.
- Effective parenting strategies
- How to promote your child’s development
- How to manage common child behaviour problems
- Principles to help you deal with almost any situation that might arise.
This information is delivered in a group setting. The great thing about doing a Triple P Group Course is that the groups are small (typically 6 to 8 people) and you’ll feel immediately at home with a group of parents who all want the same thing - to do the best for their children and have an enjoyable family life! Groups are run by an accredited Triple P practitioner. There are five two-hour group sessions (once per week), followed by a review session, addressing your individual progress.
Which children and young people do we work with?
We work with parents/carers of children and young people from age 3 to 16 with a physical or mental impairment, which has a substantial and long term effect of their ability to carry out day to day activities. This may include for example, a physical or learning disability, a hearing or visual impairment, children with ASC and children who may have challenging behaviour as a result of their learning disability.
The Triple P (Disabilities) course can be accessed by a professional working with a family. This could include GP, school nurse, health visitor, care manager, teacher or anybody else working with the child.
Complete and return the referral form to us and include confirmation that parents/carers have given consent for the referral to this service.
