This interactive and enjoyable session explores what autism feels like from the inside and the impact of the condition on individuals. It examines autism in a social context as well as looking at the range of autistic traits.
The training is suitable for anyone interested in autism: health and social care practitioners, autistic adults, the parents of autistic children, have all found it useful. The session was initially developed for therapists and counsellors, as they were not identifying autistic clients and thus were finding it challenging to help them. It soon became apparent that others were coming along and benefiting. The stories shared were helpful and the mixture of participants enriches the experience for everyone.
A certificate of attendance or CPD certificate can be provided if required.
I don't want cost to prevent people who would benefit from this course from attending, if the price is a serious obstacle for you contact me to ask about a reduced rate space.
The session covers
• An overview of autism
• Why autistic people have social and communication differences
• How and why autistic people respond to information and in unusual ways
• Autistic strengths and challenges
• Some reasons why autism is often not identified
• Experiential exercises and discussion
