Schedule

9.00AM REGISTRATION

9.15AM INTRODUCTION TO CHP & TRAINER

9.30AM Talk 1: Understanding and managing anxiety

Anxiety disorders are very common amongst people on the autistic spectrum. The anxiety that autistic people experience might be different from 'normal' ('neurotypical') anxiety. Learn the reasons autistic people are likely to feel anxious and discover simple, effective strategies that can have an enormous effect on the individual's day to day experience of life.

11.00AM Talk 2: Ways to help autistic people become more resilient

Resilience is the capacity to recover from difficult situations. Autistic people might be more sensitive and more naive than other people. They may have more difficulties than other people. Learn some ways to build resilience in autistic people so that they may have a slightly easier time getting through life.

12.15PM LUNCH

1.00PM Talk 3: Seeing and using the positive traits of autism

There's a large amount of focus on the negatives and difficulties associated with autism. Let's put a spin on it and discover some of the positive traits and how these can be used to benefit the autistic individual and the people around them.

2.30PM Video: A Day At Secondary School For The Girl With The Curly Hair

Your chance to watch a short film written and directed by Alis Rowe, autistic woman and founder of The Curly Hair Project, with time for discussion and review of the film afterwards.

Refreshments

Refreshments are available but lunch is not provided

Exhibitors

We are offering exhibition space at great value too (just £50).

An exhibition stand means that you will have a table to display your information in the room where the training takes place. Participants will be able to talk to you during breaks and lunch. We will introduce you to the group or invite you to introduce yourself.

If you wish to ask any questions about the exhibitor space, or any other matter regarding the day, please feel free to email Sam Ramsay, Manager via sam@thegirlwiththecurlyhair.co.uk and she will be pleased to help you.
