An Experiential View Of Autism
Thu 20 April 2017, 16:00 – 17:00 BST
The training will firstly ‘recap’ basic knowledge and understanding of autism and then give an experiential view of autism, giving real life examples of thought processes and perceptions from an individual on the spectrum.
Areas to be discussed include: communication, sensory sensitivities, information overload, anxiety and expectation/routine.
The trainer usually gives training in a relaxed ’workshop style’ where discussion and didactic learning is encouraged.
Please note: A resource library will also be available before and after the session providing texts to browse.
