Heywood Autism SEN Support

HASS is a non-profit service which offers drop in sessions and are delighted to announce that they are now running another Life Coaching Parenting Workshop from September 2019.

What we do

Workshops are designed to bridge the gap in the services for parents whom have a child with or without disabilities or SEN needs.  We teach parents how to become more confident and build their self-esteem. 

Every module works by supporting and teaching the parent about themselves and how to implement the learning on to their children.

We also offer debt advice and counselling to help parents with DLA forms and referrals through our parent drop in sessions every Wednesday.

Heywood Autism SEN support

Heywood Autism and SEN support is a drop in session for parents and carers to meet each other and share their experiences.

Join us every Wednesday (only term time) 10am to 12pm in the Event room at Bearded Baristas, York Street, Heywood OL10 4JA.

We have various guest speakers from local services that join us regularly. Refreshments to be purchased on the premises only.

Healthy body and mind workshop

This workshop is about guiding people how to find what their relationship is with food and use a number of counselling and life coaching techniques to help them find their own life purpose and become empowered. 

Starting from Thursday 12th September 2019.

Please contact us for further information.
