Event description

Description

Our "Empowering Ourselves to Be Heard" Project is central to the philosophy of what we believe in at CAAS. To truly understand autism we need to listen to the voices of autistic people. We aim to support and empower autistic individuals and those around them.

This highly commended training is delivered by our experienced trainers and facilitators, parents of autistic individuals and most importantly, autistic people themselves. It truly empowers all those who participate to get their voices heard.

Our training will provide:

Morning:

A theoretical understanding of autism providing knowledge about the characteristics and diagnostic criteria. We will look at how these differences are expressed: creativity, challenging behaviour, sensory diversity, obsessions, communication style, social issues, mental health experiences, executive function challenges, aptitudes and skills.

We will also briefly explore parenting autistic children giving a view into the parent's/carer experience.

Afternoon:

Insight into the unique perspective of autistic people through listening to a panel of men and women, each with their own experience and story to share.

The panel will be followed by smaller discussion groups where you will have the opportunity to engage, explore and ask questions of our panellists to support you in developing your own practice in supporting individuals on the autistic spectrum.


Delegates will be provided with a Certificate of Attendance on completion of the course.

The “Empowering” project also provide tailor made neurodiversity training (ADHD and/or autism) to meet the particular needs of your profession or workplace. Please contact us for more information.


Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Please specify any dietary requirements upon booking.

Book before 31st August and take advantage of our Early Bird booking rates!
