SPECS stands for Supporting Parents and Early Childhood Services
It is a Bray Area Partnership initiative in the greater Bray area which takes a Prevention and Early Intervention approach to working with caregivers to improve outcomes for children. The SPECS initiative works with a range of agencies implementing a number of programmes that have been proven to improve outcomes for children and families.
We believe every child should reach their potential and parents should be supported to help their child do so. Through a number of different initiatives we aim to support parents and practitioners to enable children to grow and develop.
Why should I get involved?
The programmes are designed to help make family life easier. If you feel you would like to learn other ways of dealing with conflict, stress or helping your child develop and learn please contact SPECS to talk about how you can do this. SPECS provides supports to parents FREE of charge.
Due to the Covid19 restrictions that are in place, SPECS have moved online for many of our programmes.
