Early Positive Approaches to Support (E-PAtS) is an 8-week family support programme for parents/caregivers who have a child aged 18 months – 5 years with additional developmental needs.

EPAtS has been designed by families and practitioners and provides support for parents’ wellbeing and their child’s development including support with sleep, communication and positive approaches to supporting behaviours that challenge.
