North Tyneside Council has purchased a multi-user licence for three free online courses for all families and parents-to-be in the borough to help with understanding the best ways to care for their children. These courses are relevant to parents of all children, including those with special needs, autism, ADHD etc.
The courses are written by Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) professionals with other health and education workers. They are evidence based and accredited by the Department for Education and can be accessed via the website using the access code QUADRANT: www.inourplace.co.uk
The courses available are:
- Understanding your pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby
- Understanding your baby
- Understanding your child
The courses are based on the Solihull Approach which aims to improve emotional health and wellbeing by supporting relationships in families. Research shows that these courses help reduce conflict in families and increase closeness and families report they help with managing children’s strong feelings, family communication, understanding each other and behaviour.
The courses usually cost £39 per person. However, every single resident in North Tyneside can access these parenting courses completely free of charge either from their own computers, tablets, phones or local libraries.
