Cognitive Behaviour Therapy – An Introduction – Mary Mulrooney – Mary manages the KITE Service for adults with aspergers and autism. CBT is an approach and therapy that has gained a lot of attention in recent years. Mary will explain the basics of the approach and how it can be used to support children and young people on the spectrum. She will also show how we can all benefit from using the approach in our daily lives when dealing with the everyday struggles and challenges that sometimes block us on our journey through life.

Autism, Me and Strengths Based Practice – Niki O’Neill is an autistic woman but a great deal of other things as well. She is a language tutor, a life coach and a mother, as well as an explorer of all things cultural. Niki shares with us her life experience and how using a Strengths Based approach to working with children and adults on the spectrum can enhance their personal development and lay the foundations for a lifelong learning journey.

Transitions – Liz Fitzgerald is a teacher with many years of experiences and training in teaching and supporting children and young people on the spectrum. Transitions are often identified as a serious challenge for individuals on the spectrum. There are big transitions in life and also small ones. Transitions that happen only once in a students life and those faced every day and even every hour as we support our students to move from one activity to another. Liz will identify the different types of transitions, why they pose a difficulty for students and the strategies we can use to support students on the spectrum to deal effectively with these transitions.
