In the past, we have had teenagers come to this workshop, who really enjoyed it and participated in the interactive elements.
This workshop is relevant to both males and females.
“It is the first time my son has ever been able to attend an ASD event of any kind and could relate to so much. He came away understanding so much more about himself. Thank you!”
“Very well structured. Clarity of information. “Straight to the point” way of delivering information made easy for our daughter to follow & understand. Alis’s willingness to share her own feelings made the whole session very meaningful & personal, many thanks!”
“I loved the fact that the whole presentation is delivered from both the NT and ASD perspective, really helps a person on the spectrum to see where their experience may differ from the ‘norm’. This also helps to see why it’s so important to be able to explain the difficulties you may experience – as NT’s may not realise/understand.”
“I went to this workshop and it was AMAZING! Very thought provoking and useful. Thanks so much.”
“This workshop was a good reminder of how hard my sons find life every single day. It’s so easy to forget how challenging the world is for them because they ‘look’ fine. I got so much out of it – thank you!”
"It was by far the most helpful and informative training I've attended since my son's diagnosis 2 years ago. Thank you!"
