Event description

Description

This training aims to help education professionals working directly with students on the spectrum to understand their students better, by examining what is happening 'behind the scenes' and offer a toolbox of helpful strategies to take away and apply to your practice.

The three presentations will be delivered by people coming from a range of perspectives.

Maria Dollard - As a parent of a young autistic woman, she will share a description of autism from an 'inside out' perspective based on her observations as a parent, her work as a professional supporting young adults on the spectrum and insights shared by a wide range of autistic people.

Eileen Morris - Eileen will share a dynamic workshop style presentation on Sensory Processing and Autism. Eileen works with both children and young adults on the spectrum. She will help learners to understand what sensory processing is and how this understanding can help us to support the young people we work with in a more empathetic way. By understanding the impact on the central nervous system of our students on the spectrum we can become more tuned into how they experience the world and understand their behaviour from a different perspective.

Niki O'Neill joins us again to present her new talk "Futureproofing - Seven Simple Lifelines". This talk will offer a toolbox of strategies that Niki believes might be lifechanging for young people on the spectrum. Niki is an autistic woman and a great deal of other things as well. She is a mother and a teacher, a knitter and an explorer of all things cultural. Niki shares with us her life experience and how using these simple tools can profoundly impact on the outcomes for young people and lay strong foundations that will carry them through life.
