Description

E4 was held in the Panos Solomonidis Hall in Limassol on 21 March 2018, hosted by AASP. It was attended by 90 delegates from Cyprus and Greece. The one-day conference began with an initial round-table discussion (conference coordinator, local project partners from AASP and EUC, parent representatives, and representatives from unions, universities and local/national government) presenting the project to these decision-makers and discussing the need for PE as a small group. Partner Nefi Charalambous Darden (AASP)welcomed participants. This was followed by presentations giving the perspective of Cypriot parents (Andri Sheitani, mother of a child on the spectrum) and Elli Sophocleous Maraggou, representing the Municipality of Limassol. David Preece (UoN) presented the ESIPP project and progress to date and Ron Fortuna (TA) and Angela Winstanley (AASP) introduced the parent education programme curriculum and materials. Presentations were then given by partners from the three countries in which ESIPP training was being undertaken, outlining the situation faced by families there, how the training was being delivered, and its impact on families. These presentations were given by Jasmina Troshanska (MSSA), Ana Ružić (CZA) and Nefi Charalambous-Darden (AASP). These presentations were supported by videos interviews with parents who had attended ESIPP training. Aurélie Baranger (AE) and David Preece (UoN) introduced the Policy Recommendations, before a final plenary session.
