A NEW series of the highly successful ‘Let’s Talk’ webinars for parents is being developed by Safer Devon.

The free, open access online programme provides a space for parents and carers to discuss the challenges facing young people today and understand the tools and techniques that they can use to support them.

So far the sessions have focussed on teenagers and pre-teens, covering topics such as drugs and alcohol, body image, online safety and peer pressure. 

Now the Let’s Talk Team are working on developing sessions for parents and carers of neurodivergent young people and those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. 

They are keen to make sure that the programme is suitable and accessible, so if you care for or support a neuro-divergent young person or a young person with special educational needs and disabilities, either with or without a diagnosis, please share your thoughts with the team using this quick online survey by Friday, April 26.
