Services for Parents
We believe parents are the best teachers.
If you’ve ever wished your child came with an instruction manual, you’ve come to the right place! Raising children is probably the most difficult job you will ever have . . . but the good news is, you don’t have to do it alone.
We’re here whenever you need a BOOST.
One of our most important jobs at BeChange is supporting parents and families. We know that parenting is hard enough without the added stress of behavioural challenges. Our BOOST programmes equip families with proven strategies to cope with those challenges, so that every child can reach their full potential.
Children and their parents both enjoy these fun, practical coaching sessions, where you’ll learn how to embed learning moments into everyday play. BOOST Play is ideal for parents of children with ASD or developmental delays.
This is an individualised parent training programme suitable for 12 – 21 year olds. Over four sessions, you’ll learn how to help your child learn the important skills they may have been struggling with.
When your child has challenging behaviours that are interfering with their daily life, this individualised programme can help.
BOOST Healthy Eating
A healthy and nutritious diet is so important in helping children reach their full potential. If your child has selective feeding issues or food refusal, we can help.
BOOST Toilet Time
Independence with toileting is a vital life skill. Our parent-led toileting interventions are tailored towards children with developmental disabilities between the ages of 3 – 16 years.
Stress to Strength Parent Workshop
This 6-week Parent Workshop is a very supportive group course ideal for parents of children of any age with a disability or developmental delay.
Services for Parents FAQs
Where are the sessions held?
At your place! Your therapist is more than happy to come to you. In our experience we have found that children are more comfortable and respond best in their own homes.
Who should attend the session?
The child and at least one parent or caregiver. If it is possible for both parents/caregivers to attend, that is ideal. Other siblings or family members may attend the sessions too. Ultimately it depends on the service as to who should attend the sessions. We will discuss this at the initial consultation.
I’ve already tried everything! Will this really work?
Most families have tried many things before reaching out to us. We don’t have crystal balls and cannot guarantee our services will work. However, we can guarantee that our services will be professional and based on the most effective and update to date science.
