Event description

Description

Content:

This workshop looks at the foundations of the complicated – often misunderstood – condition known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This workshop covers the following topics:

  • the dyad of impairments
  • personality types/how personality can influence the way ASD is expressed
  • co-occuring conditions
  • why a diagnosis is important
  • reasonable adjustments in society (the workplace, education, etc.)

You will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Audience:

  • individuals newly diagnosed
  • parents and families
  • teachers and teaching staff
  • health professionals

This workshop is relevant to both males and females.

Feedback:

“I like the visual imagery, it’s so easy to understand.”

“The work demonstrates all the theory but with personal experience and insight to back it up.”

“I liked the use of comic strip to illustrate key points and use of visuals.”

Venue information:

The room is on the first floor, above the Kingswinford Physiotherapy Practice (white building). We are on the corner of Market St and Broad St and there is also a hairdressers called Haze on the corner. To gain entrance, come to the rear of the building and you will see a white PVC door, there will be a poster displayed for the workshop too. Press the buzzer in the entrance hall and I will let you in. Parking is available very occasionally at the rear of the building, you can also park along Broad St, in any of the local side streets / car parks, or on the car park of the Swan Pub which is opposite the building.
