Girls with Autism workshop
16th October 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Much of the information and understanding of autism is focused around boys. With increasing numbers of girls being diagnosed and families requiring support, this bespoke workshop has been designed to address the challenges of parenting/caring for girls on the autistic spectrum.
In addition to meeting other parents and carers of girls, you will explore the differences between girls and boys on the autistic spectrum and the ways in which girls adapt to their differences. We will discuss difficulties such as friendships and low self-esteem and identify strategies to address them. You will also learn about the management of puberty and adolescence in girls with ASD conditions.
This workshop is run by Nicola Szeto who is an experienced trainer as well as a parent to a teenager with autism.
This workshop is suitable for parents and carers of girls up to 16 years. Please note it is not suitable for those whose daughter has an associated severe learning disability.
Places are limited and need to be prebooked. The cost of this workshop is £10 per family. If you would like to attend please email us at email@example.com or speak to us at one of the support groups to obtain a booking form.
