Welcome to CATTS Online Training

A service for parents, teachers and health staff.

These are the courses and talks which we have been asked to deliver over the years to parents, teachers, healthcare staff in hospitals and residential services. 

If you are new to this site, please read how the courses are laid out, here, to enable you to get the best out of this resource.
