How to access Cygnet

To access this course, your child / young person must have a formal diagnosis of Autism (ASD) from a professional and be aged between 5 and 18 years old.

South Gloucestershire Playscheme will run 8 Cygnet courses over the next 12 months and we can accommodate up to 12 parents on each course.  

We welcome all parents and carers to attend together, but can also accommodate parents / carers to attend separate courses if preferred. There will be a choice of dates that you can choose, from daytime to evening. Each course will run either in-person or online. In-person sessions will be run across South Gloucestershire.

Booking are open for parents on the waiting list on Ticket Tailor with a mix of courses to run through the year. So, you can choose the dates that suit you best.  Dates and venues will be announced when Ticket Tailor is taking bookings.

The tutor was very good. It was really useful to hear about real-life stories/experiences and it was lovely to hear about how her own children have overcome their difficulties and have been successful.’ RA OCT 2022
