People with autism have the unique ways of seeing and experiencing the world, and process information in different ways. This leads to difficulties and impairments in communication, social interaction and repetitive behaviours.

Moreover, the communication impairment often makes people with autism “trapped” in the world only they can see but rarely make meanings of it themselves.

From the few who managed to communicate how it feels, there is a lot to see and understand. Seeing these from an insider’s view opens up the myriad of strategies to help clients with autism to learn skills, improve communication, and in managing ‘challenging’ behaviours.

This interactive and practical course draws the insight directly from people with autism and their unique experience, from the famous autism spokespersons Temple Grandin or Stephen Wiltshire, from the few books written by people with autism or by the families experienced in supporting them.

Gain the rare opportunity to see the world of autism from within, and learn how to better support clients with autism using this rarely-found insight and understanding.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn first-hand experience on how people with autism perceive the world and process information
  • Learn how these unique ways to see the world lead to difficulties and impairment in communication and social interaction or repetitive behaviours
  • Understand why people with autism do what they do – flicking lights, repeating other people’s words, covering ears, difficulties managing changes in routine- and how to help them manage these behaviours
  • Learn how these unique characteristics lead to challenging behaviours in autism, and learn better strategies to help clients with autism to overcome their difficulties using the new insight and understanding

Who should attend?

Parents and staff working with children and adults with diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder who want to learn the specific ways to supporting the clients
