Course Overview

Who cares for the carers? The vast majority of care is delivered by parents or carers who are often left largely unsupported and whose training and support are often not recognised or addressed. This can leave parents and carers in an unsafe position, unsure about what to do for the best. We believe that parents and carers have the right to quality training and support tailored to their circumstances and needs. 

Simple interventions can and do make a world of difference. Having access to bespoke training that meets all of your needs is vital for anyone in a caring role.  CALM will listen and explore and help you understand why behaviour that challenges is happening. Together we can develop strategies aimed at reducing distress and maximising safety. These may include physical skills where required as a last resort. 

This course is designed specifically with the needs of parents / informal carers / foster carers of children with learning disabilities / autistic spectrum disorder. This course can be delivered flexibly over evening and weekends if necessary, to meet your needs.
