Regular Courses


Supporting Carers of Autism through Training (SCATT)


Are you a parent/carer of a child or adolescent with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and have not attended a SCATT course before? SCATT courses are an excellent source of information for those new to ASD or for those requiring a little more in-depth knowledge. Babysitting can be provided free of charge for Harrow residents. Babysitting can be provided for out of Borough residents but will have to be paid for by the family.


The course is held three times per year. It costs £20.00 for individuals, £30 for a couple. Babysitting can be provided free of charge for Harrow residents.


The course will run for 6 weeks and will cover the following topics:


• Background to Autism

• Communication

• Behaviour Management

• Sensory Impairment

• Autism & The Family

• Parenting Tips


Due to our pending move we do not have dates for the September SCATT course yet but if you would like to be notified of the date, or be added to the waiting list, please contact Lynne Laverty on 020 8901 8009 or autism@adhdandautismharrow.co.uk.



Living with ADHD & Autism


This supportive 10 week course is designed to help parents deal with the challenging behaviour brought on by the conditions of ADHD/ASD and other co-morbid conditions.


The course focuses on building self-esteem and how to communicate effectively with your children, as well as dealing with feelings (theirs and ours). Setting limits and boundaries and dealing with anger are also covered. The condition of ADHD is looked at and explored and parents/carers are given an opportunity to work on difficult issues in a safe a non judgemental environment.


The course is also run three times per year and lasts for 10 weeks. It costs £40.00 for members (£50.00 per couple for members). Babysitting can be provided free of charge for Harrow residents.

CALMS Training


CALMS is a new course for young people in Year 8, 9 or 10. It will help them find new ways to have a positive experience of living with ADHD. Being hyperactive is not necessarily a bad thing, it's great to have lots of energy and this course can show you how to channel that energy in a good way.
