The workshop provides a detailed description of individuals on the Autism Spectrum, including profiles on the neurology, biology, cognitive processing, perception differences and learning styles of those with the condition.
The workshop offers a vivid insight into the subtle intricacies of Autism/Asperger’s; but more importantly provides participants a myriad of strategies to engage successfully with individuals on the Spectrum.
Participants will learn specific techniques for dealing with challenging behaviours and meltdown and how to decrease stress in those with AS.
The training includes Nelle’s high-impact Sensory Detective Workshop ® - an interactive exercise that allows you to look at Autism/Asperger’s from the inside out!
