First Group of Learners Start ‘Bridges in Social Understanding’ Programme

We are delighted to announce that our first group of learners have commenced the ‘Bridges’ Curriculum.  They will now be able to access the programme in a paced manner, with weekly online-based sessions, for the duration of one year. We are very excited to see how these young pioneers will benefit from this evidence-based training.

Further intakes will be aligned with the school terms, so that our next group of learners will be able to start at the onset of the 2nd term, on Wednesday 11 April 2018

Registration and payment for this ‘batch’ of learners will close on Friday 06 April 2018.

Please contact for more information.

Bridges in Social Understanding 

Neurodiversity Centre hosted very successful training for professionals in the use of the Bridges in Social Understanding social skills curriculum on 30-31 January 2018. This was attended by 31 professionals, and was followed by a training day for parents on 02 February 2018, attended by 15 parents. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and we are now ready for our clients to start using this online social skills programme. The programme is available at R2750 per child per year (the year can run across two calendar years, if it is started halfway though one year). Though ideally delivered in groups by a teacher or professional, it can also be conducted at home by a parent, with the support of an appropriate professional (such as the child’s Psychologist).

Women and Girls on the Autism Spectrum

We have been extremely honoured to host one of the top international experts in the field of Autism, Dr Judith Gould, for professional training here in the Western Cape in December 2017. She and her team from the Lorna Wing Institute (National Autistic Society) in London presented the first part of specialised diagnostic training to professionals in December, and will return in March 2018 for the second leg.

During her December visit, Dr Gould presented an extremely relevant and enlightening talk to the general public on the topic “Women and Girls on the Autism Spectrum“. Despite it having been one of the hottest days this summer, over 120 people filled up Bridge House Preparatory Hall in Franschoek on 07 December for this rare oportunity to listen to one of the leaders in the field of Autsim Spectrum Disorders. And they were not disappointed! What an honour to have someone of Dr Gould’s caliber share their expertise with us. We look forward very much to her and her team returning in March.



We also offer regular training events for professionals, teachers and facilitators – watch this space!
