  • worrying about siblings
  • coping with meltdowns

You will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Audience:

  • parents of teenagers and young children with ASD
  • families

Feedback:

“Very positive focus and holistic advice on all aspects from the AS and NT perspective. Detailed focus on the effects of autism on the NT sibling.”

“The whole session was relevant to the real family experience of living with Autism and offered insightful help and advice.”

“The slides are a very simple and informative way to illustrate/support the talks.”

“I liked the practical strategies offered for involving the AS family member in family life via prompting and household chores.”
