Event description

Description

Geoff Evans and Dean Beadle will be joining us to talk about Autistic Happiness.

10.30-12.30: Geoff Evans

Autism the happiness factor

In this talk, Geoff makes a case for moving away from the simple needs led approaches that currently influence assessment, care and provisions for autistic individuals towards one that also includes happiness, meaningful lives and wellbeing. Following a discussion on the evidence for such an approach, Geoff will explore what gets in the way of happiness, assessing for happiness, and specific areas where happiness can be promoted and practical ways of achieving this. The talk will include suggestions for developing a happiness profile with or for your child and a variety of other practical ideas.

12.30-1.15: Lunch

1.15-3.15: Dean Beadle

Autistic Joy

In this session, Dean will speak about autistic joy. He will also look at some potential barriers to achieving it and ways to work around those barriers to ensure wellbeing. This positive session gives an in-depth look at autistic happiness and is populated with numerous examples to highlight the power of autistic joy.

3.15-3.30: Questions and Close
