Training - Autism – Adolescence Practical Workshop

We specialise in and are widely known for working with providers of services as opposed to simply selling training. We pay particular attention to identified needs and requirements and whilst some of our courses and programmes can be bought “off the shelf” most of our training is designed to be adapted to meet specific organisational or workrole requirements.

Autism – Adolescence Practical Workshop

1/2 day taught course

The Adolescence workshops are more relevant to those working within children’s services but may also be of interest to everyone.

Learning Outcomes

  • To understand the role of executive functioning in the development of independence skills during adolescence for individuals with ASD.
  • To learn about the areas an individual with ASD needs information on during adolescence, or if relevant, before adolescence, e.g. the concept of private/public and body parts.
  • To learn about the different supports that can be used to develop their understanding in these areas.
  • To learn about the types of supports to use to enable individuals with ASD to develop self-management strategies during puberty, particularly around the area of personal hygiene.
