“Very interesting to hear about the many facets relating to relationship issues for those on the spectrum."
"Helpful and practical information delieved with fun and humour."
"I liked the personal experiences of the presenter and delegates on the workshop that you can relate to and the useful discussions that came from these experiences."
"This is the first time I have attended one of these workshops and so I was slightly concerned about bringing my daughter in case she found any aspect difficult. However I needn't have worried there was no aspect of the course that created a problem for her. I feel my daughter benefitted from the workshop."
This event will be hosted by Tori Chamberlain, an Associate Trainer for the Curly Hair Project. Tori is a Mum with a child who has been diagnosed with ASD, who is her own "girl with curly hair". Tori is passionate about sharing her knowledge and understanding with others and looks forward to bringing the Curly Hair Project to this part of Scotland.
