Parents and carers are so important in helping to make travel training a success!
Here are some quick and easy things you can do to help:
- Put aside some time, whenever it works best for you, to talk through elements of the training. You can do this in short bite-sized chunks using our helpful factsheets. You'll find these in the training section below.
- Practise planning journeys together
- Practise taking simple journeys together whenever you can (such as a trip to the park or shops)
- Agree a plan and a set a reminder to keep on track for success
We've designed these resources to support you. They'll give you ideas to encourage your son or daughter to improve on existing knowledge or prepare for further training from the TITAN team.
You can also use them individually to work on skills you may feel will benefit your son or daughter, or use them all together in the recommended order.
Learning to become more independent can be an anxious time, so cover as much as you feel comfortable with.
Don’t try and cover everything all in one go. Break each factsheet down in way that works for your son or daughter and you. Remember, small steps make big changes!
Good luck and please get in touch to let us know how you are getting on, or to get more information, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
