- the triad of impairments
- personality types/how personality can influence the way ASD is expressed
- co-occuring conditions
- why a diagnosis is important
- reasonable adjustments in society (the workplace, education, etc.)
This workshop meets Continual Professional Development criteria at the basic level.
- individuals newly diagnosed
- parents and families
- teachers and teaching staff
- health professionals
This workshop is relevant to both males and females.
“I like the visual imagery, it’s so easy to understand.”
“The work demonstrates all the theory but with personal experience and insight to back it up.”
“I liked the use of comic strip to illustrate key points and use of visuals.”
This event will be hosted by Tori Chamberlain, an Associate Trainer for The Curly Hair Project. Tori is a Mum with a child who has been diagnosed with ASD, who is her own "girl with curly hair". Tori is passionate about sharing her knowledge with others and looks forward to bringing the Curly Hair Project to this part of Scotland.
