The Focus on the first series of support seminars (January to March) is on 'Autism and Communication' and will be given by expert specialist on this topic, Speech and Language Therapist Lisa-Anne Roche. Alongside Lisa-Anne we will have a representative from the Autism community speak on the evening, followed by a short question and answer session.

This seminar will focus on practical tips for supporting communication skills including using visual supports and developing communication strategies. It will also cover ideas on developing social communication skills and being a clear, consistent communication partner throughout the lifecycle from young children to adults.
