Understanding the developmental changes that occur during adolescence for people with autistic neurology.

About autistic neurology during adolesence

This workshop is designed to help expand your knowledge of some of the underlying physical, emotional and neurological changes that may be contributing to the outward expression of some of our autistic teen’s behaviours. By having a deeper understanding of the developmental differences for autistic teens we can make more informed decisions on how we implement support and intervention

Workshop Summary

Autism 101 is an introductory level workshop that aims to give people a rounded understanding of autism and what it is like to be a person with autistic neurology. This workshop takes you on a journey to understanding autism from the autistic perspective. It begins with looking at the medical model of autism and follows through with how the diagnosis looks from the autistic perspective.
