Separation can be a very stressful and difficult time for any family. There can be additional pressures during this time if you have a child with Autism, as you may be anxious about explaining separation to your child or how to ensure consistency when parenting apart.  

This course is aimed at parents who are separated and wish to explore strategies to use when parenting apart.
