The Role of the Parent/Carer
OSI is a parent-led, therapist supported online intervention. Parents/carers are asked to complete 7 core modules, released weekly, plus a follow up module.
Parents/carers are also encouraged to have a go at the strategies that they learn through the modules with their child. This can be discussed during the telephone appointments, held with a therapist each week.
