Solihull Approach to sleep

While sleep is a natural instinct, it’s also a skill we have to develop: learning how to wind down and how much sleep we need. The Solihull Approach promotes connected relationships between parents and infants to help children learn and thrive as they grow.

Moving up in school

Moving up and changing school is a big change for children and parents or caregiversIt’s a new stage of growing independence and separation. Fears and worries are normal as well as excitement, as with each stage of childhood development. As parents, your role is to help children cope with and overcome their fears, to nurture them to feel brave and capable. 

Understanding your relationships

Online Course

Relationships can be difficult, complicated, fun, satisfying, exciting, annoying, bring out the best in us, bring out the worst in us. We are often in one, but we don’t often spend much time on them. So, here’s the chance!

Created by the Solihull Approach

For emotional health and wellbeing for all children and their parents so that they can thrive as kind, sociable and emotionally aware people throughout their lives.

inourplace online courses are developed by psychologists at the Solihull Approach in partnership with health experts, schools and psychotherapists as well as parents.

Testimonials

'I had an appointment with my midwife today, and she has brought me to your wonderful free Antenatal course. As a first-time mum to be, these unprecedented times have been challenging. The NCT online course was far too expensive for my partner and me to access. So I am really so grateful for the resources you have provided. Please thank all involved. What a wonderful thing your team has done for pregnant women.'

Parent Understanding your pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby

'This course has been an absolutely invaluable gift to me. It has and will change so many aspects of my life. I am undoubtedly a better parent and more rounded and fulfilled person as a result. Some aspects have literally been like "Eureka" moments to me! I WISH I’d known all this years ago.'

Learner Understanding your child: from toddler to teenager

'Well presented information, with enough biology/explanation to fully understand the changes that are taking place - also good/helpful suggestions of how to accommodate the teen years - thank you.'

Tutor Understanding your teenager’s brain

​'My 15 year old watched the sensory video clips. He identified his brother's behaviour in some of them but very much saw himself. He commented 'Mum that's me and that's why I do what I do!'. Since he asked me for the link for the clips and sent them to his friend, who had been calling him weird so he could understand him better. He also opened up to his friendship group about his autism and can talk to them about what it is like to be him.'

Parent Understanding your child with additional needs

'A very easy to understand way of putting things and no longer will I fight against things that I can not change due to biology.'

Teenager Understanding your brain (for teenagers only!)

'[This] is desperately needed and such a quality product for parents who are navigating an often lonely and frightening path with a child with disabilities. So many of our parenting referrals are from parents who are struggling with children who are neurodiverse and we, too, have had some excellent feedback from parents about the course... Thank you all so much'
