This workshop looks at the foundations of the complicated – often misunderstood – condition known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This workshop covers the following topics:
- 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.)
- 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 Nellie P. Moore, Trainer at The Curly Hair Project. Nellie was diagnosed with ASD in 2014, in her mid-50s. After receiving her diagnosis, she feels like she has been reborn. Her deepest desire is to to help others with their process of discovery and understanding through being an advocate for ASD. She is very excited to be bringing the CHP to the States! More information about Nellie on our website.
