FREE help is available for parents of children with special educational needs in south Wiltshire.

A five-week positive parenting programme will offer them a chance to share their experiences with others in a similar position, offer new ideas on managing challenging behaviour and encouraging good behaviour, and help them feel more in control.

The first of two courses, for those with children aged from eight to 16, will run on Thursdays, starting May 15, from 9.30am to midday at the Little Folly Children’s Centre, Winding Way.
