Understanding Autism for Educators
This talk aims to provide a shared understanding of autism from a neurodevelopmental perspective. It will examine how autism can impact daily functioning, and how it affects life at school. We will explore the perceived contradictions in these students, such as the difficulties in social interaction, communication and behaviour, and the potential for exceptional skills and talents. We will also look at how to support school life and mental wellbeing for these students.
As with most of our neurodiversity talks, this talk can also be delivered as a parents workshop as a way for schools/organisations to support parents in developing a better a understanding of their child's strengths and needs.
