Description

Come and hear Professor Tony Attwood leading two workshops

Tony is a clinical psychologist who has specialised in autism spectrum disorders since he qualified as a clinical psychologist in England in 1975.  He currently works in his own private practice, and is also adjunct professor at Griffith University, Queensland and senior consultant at the Minds and Hearts clinic in Brisbane.  

This is an unique opportunity to hear Professor Attwood speak on topics close to his heart in Dumfries.  The two workshops are:

Morning:  Making Friends:  Strategies to improve social understanding and friendship skills

The presentation explains the stages in the development of friendship and strategies to encourage the development of friendship skills and social integration for younger children.  The activities can be applied in the classroom, playground and at home.

Afternoon:  Adolescent issues for teenagers with Asperger’s syndrome

The presentation focuses on issues faced by teenagers with Asperger's syndrome, which range from the physical aspects of puberty to changes in friendship, the development of sexuality, the change in academic expectations, issues regarding self-esteem and preparation for employment.

Ticket price includes buffet lunch (12.30 - 1.30) and coffee on arrival.
