The NAS EarlyBird Programme is a three-month programme for parents/carers of a pre-school (not yet of statutory school age) child with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. It combines group training sessions for parents with individual home visits when video feedback is used to help parents apply what they learn, whilst working with their child. The NAS EarlyBird Plus programme is designed to meet the needs of families whose child has received a later diagnosis (four-eight years) and is in Early Years or Key Stage One provision. It addresses the needs of both home and school settings by training parents/carers together with a professional who is working regularly with their child. The team offering EarlyBird has been trained and licensed to deliver EarlyBird and EarlyBird Plus programmes by the NAS EarlyBird Centre.
