Event Details


This is a half day course for people working with children and young people in West Sussex.

This course is being delivered through a partnership between Coastal West Sussex Mind, , Autism Sussex and West Sussex County Council.


Understanding the lived experience of a young person / teenager with an autism spectrum condition 

This workshop will address from the perspective of the individual with ASC.  This is an opportunity for the audience to experience things from the other side.  What impact does ASC have on the individual?  What are they communicating?  How important it is to listen to them.  How can you support and empower them as an individual in the most positive, creative way?  It includes strategies around anxiety, mood management, social skills, transition, adolescence and puberty.  Perspectives from individuals on the spectrum will be presented.


  • Identify characteristics of young adults with autism
  • Recognise the challenges e.g. late diagnosis, acceptance/understanding of labels, mental health, sensory/environmental issues, social anxieties, bullying, safe guarding, transitioning, adolescence and puberty
  • Introduce person-centred planning, , motivation, active support, independence, responsibility, initiating and maintaining respect

Looking to the future e.g. social life, college transition, work experience etc.
