The positive parenting programme is aimed for parents who have children with disability under the age of 18 years.

The topics that are covered include: 

  • Promoting independence at an early stage
  • Dealing with grief
  • Understanding your child’s needs and your own parenting styles
  • Setting up for success and independence
  • Values, rules and rewards
  • Positive discipline: The road to independent living
  • Resources and parenting tips: the 5 languages of love and promoting a secure attachment.



These sessions are delivered in groups.


There are three main categories of this training aimed at different age groups of the children.

  1. Early Years 0 – 3 years
  2. Primary Years 4 – 11 years
  3. Teenage Years 12 – 18 years
