Parenting Programme and Workshops

Stepping Stones Triple P Parenting Programme

Supermarket meltdowns? Mealtime tantrums? Bedtime battles? When you’re the parent or carer of a child with a disability, sometimes life can be extra challenging.

That’s why Barnet Mencap is offering parents in Barnet free parenting support through the Stepping Stones Triple P Parenting Programme. Triple P courses cover different age ranges, different conditions and are held in different parts of the borough run for five weeks followed by telephone support and a final group session.

  • Stepping Stones Triple P Parenting
  • Tips and Strategies
  • Encourage behaviour you like
  • Teach your child new skills
  • Cope with stress

On Tuesday 1st October 2019 we have a course starting for parents of children with autism or a learning disability - contact our office to see if any places are still available.
