About this Event

What is a Virtual Learning Event?

Never been to a virtual learning event? It is like an on-line workshop where you can see the trainer, other attendees, you can type questions, draw on whiteboards, meet with others in break out rooms and see a whole host of visual and written resources. You can also simply watch and learn if that’s your preference.

It is simple to join from a smart-phone or PC/tablet. You will be emailed a link that you simply need to click at the time the session is taking place. Full details of how to access the course will be sent to you once you have registered.

Coping with Meltdowns

This workshop is delivered by Aspie Trainers, a project which supports autistic adults to design and deliver engaging, high quality autism training which mixes thorough and up-to-date research and theory with the practical lived experiences of the trainers themselves.

This is a 90 minute workshop for parents, carers and family members.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Explain the difference between a meltdown, a shutdown and a temper tantrum
  • Identify how having a meltdown or shutdown commonly impacts on an autistic person
  • Understand the factors which contribute to autistic people experiencing meltdowns and/or shutdowns
  • Explore ways to reduce the likelihood of meltdowns or shutdowns
  • Identify ways to support autistic people during and after meltdowns and shutdowns

Eligibility

This is a two hour virtual workshop for parents, carers and families. This course is free to West Sussex (UK) residents because of funding received from West Sussex County Council. Please kindly do not register for a free ticket if you do not live in West Sussex (UK).

If you are a UK resident living outside of West Sussex, you can still attend but there is a non-refundable fee of £12.50 to cover costs unless the event is cancelled by the organiser.
