Please find attached Early Days flyers outlining workshops are now live webinars (Zoom Meetings).
Early Days is a series of FREE workshops for parents, grandparents, and families of young children (0-7 years) who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder or who are going through the assessment and diagnostic process.
This initiative is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services through the Helping Children with Autism package.
The workshops are facilitated by Margaret Clancy who has many years of experience working with young autistic children and their families. Margaret will assist parents to understand the impact of Autism on their child and explore strategies to enable them to understand their child and family.
The workshops are either 2 or 3 parts each at 1.5hrs per session. We have limited the registrations to 12 attendees. All participants will need to register – even if/when there are more than 1 participant on the same device. Participants must attend part 1 in order to attend parts 2 and/or 3.
We have 2 series of The My Child and Autism workshop & Understanding Behaviour workshop – a morning series (9.30-11.00am) and an evening series (7.30pm-9.00pm). Please note – participants cannot mix and match their attendance to these workshops. If you register for the morning workshop – you can only attend the morning workshops and vice versa.

Please advertise as widely as you see appropriate.

Ready-Set-Connect events are FREE to attend and are different to your typical expo. They are delivered in a speed dating format where events are timed and structured. Not to mention they are fun and interactive. Here is one of the events in action –

Ready-Set-Connect events are held to empower Support Coordinators, Case Managers, Carers, Parents, PWD, Teachers, LACs etc to build their local connections, enabling them true choice and control! These events provide a positive environment for those within the NDIS community to connect and collaborate with others, broaden their industry knowledge and promote their service or product.  They have proven hugely popular around the country because each attendee is 100% guaranteed to be matched and get to talk to each service provider.

The events provide an effective and efficient platform to build provider networks and build local knowledge of services and products available. In the space of 2 hours, you get to meet and collaborate with a variety of service providers. Register for free via the following links:
