FLOURISH PARENTING TOPIC COURSES

While parenting is already a tricky gig, somewhere between a tightrope walker and a NASA logistics engineer, extra neurological and psychological issues can complicate and challenge parenting further. 

 "I plan to give you love, nurturing and just enough dysfunction to make you funny."

"I plan to give you love, nurturing and just enough dysfunction to make you funny."

The topics courses aim to really focus on neurological, psychological and developmental differences: the positives and the negatives - and to inform, equip and most importantly support parents who have kids with challenges socially, emotionally,  mentally and physically.

Currently all courses will be held in Carlow. More courses and locations are being planned for 2018/2019

Course topics include: anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism (children & teens), DCD, neuroscience and communication

Parents must have completed the Foundation Course before starting any topic courses.
