Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

This one-day event from The Caldwell Autism Foundation will provide a range of insights into the sensory experiences of people with autism and the different ways in which sensory processing difficulties can affect the person's daily life. Our speakers will talk about the sensory world of autism and reflect on what can happen for autistic people when we assume that there is only one way of experiencing the sensory world.

The Caldwell Autism Foundation is proud to bring you the following speakers for our Autism and Sensory Processing event:

o Olga Bogdashina

Co-Founder, Programme Leader (Autism Courses) and Lecturer, International Autism Institute, KSPU and Visiting Lecturer in Autism Studies, ICEP Europe. Olga is a leading autism researcher and author, teaching and lecturing in the UK, Europe, & Mexico. She has a son (30) with classic autism and a daughter (27) with Asperger syndrome.

o Richard Maguire

Published author and autism consultant who runs his own autism training consultancy. Richard works as an autism consultant with children, adults and parents as well as with organisations. He brings a wealth of personal and professional experience to his presentations, which are delivered with his trademark honesty, insight and humour.

o Anya Ustaszewski

Composer/sonic artist and musician as well as an experienced autism speaker and trainer. Anya is a Chair of Trustees for the award-winning charity ASSERT Brighton and Hove. She is autistic and was diagnosed in her mid-20s, having previously received inaccurate and unhelpful labels. Anya strongly values her identity as an autistic person, both the challenging and the positive aspects.


We are also pleased to welcome Becky Lyddon from Sensory Spectacle, who will be bringing along their sensory installations to raise awareness and understanding of the sensory processing difficulties which people with autism can experience, and Tina Yates from Irlen East, who will be able to talk to you about how prescription coloured lenses can be used to reduce or eliminate sensory perceptual difficulties.

We will provide refreshments mid-morning and afternoon, whilst for lunch you can bring your own or there are plenty of food shops and cafes near the venue.

There will be a quiet room available for anyone who might need to take some time out.

If you have any queries about our event, please do not hesitate to contact our Co-ordinator, Rorie Fulton at rorie@thecaldwellautismfoundation.org.uk
