This workshop looks at the experience of a child/teenager with autism spectrum disorder at secondary school. We will discuss:

Although we discuss young people and children, the workshops were not created for children. We don't want them to be bored during the workshop so if you do bring them please also bring their colouring books, iPads etc. and feel free to get up and go as much as you/they wish.
This workshop is relevant to both males and females.
Parking is available nearby.
