A child’s autism affects every member of the family in different ways. In this workshop we give insight and strategies on topics including:
- parental expectations of the autistic child/young person
- worrying about siblings
- coping with meltdowns
- parents of teenagers and young children with ASD
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.
