Solihull online course – Understanding your child’s mental health and wellbeing
If you are either interested or worried about your child’s mental health and wellbeing, then this course is for you.
This course ‘Understanding your child’s mental health and wellbeing’ is unusual as it introduces you to mental health and wellbeing in Part 1…, then you leave this course and complete ‘Understanding your child’ …and then come back to Part 2 of this course.
If you have already completed ‘Understanding your child’ then you don’t need to do it again (unless you want a refresh or to look at it from a different angle).

Solihull online course – Understanding your child with additional needs
This online course is for parents with a child with additional needs. It is for parents, relatives and friends of children who may have a physical or learning disability or who may have autistic traits. In the UK, you may be within the SEND (Special educational needs and disability) system. Some parents describe their child as differently abled, or neuroatypical.
This course is in 2 sections. Level 1 lays the foundation for understanding your child. Level 2 looks at some particular aspects of parenting: sleeping and anger management, together with more about how we interact with each other. Understanding this can make it easier to work with your child’s behaviour as well as supporting their development. Once you finish Level 1 you can progress to Level 2 if you’d like to.
