Many autistic people have difficulty processing everyday sensory information such as sounds, sights and smells. Dealing with these challenges can cause high levels of anxiety and stress, resulting in behaviours that can be difficult for other people to understand and offer significant challenges to professionals involved in the provision of educational, health and welfare services. Understanding the causes of sensory issues can be key in helping to support autistic people at home, school or residential provision.
At this conference, our expert speakers will give you the tools and knowledge to support and help autistic people affected by sensory issues. It will look at how you can help overcome challenges caused by sensory issues and help you to understand the huge impact they can have on the life of an autistic person. Suitable for education professionals, occupational therapists, social workers and support workers, clinicians across the professional field, voluntary sector groups and not-for-profit organisations, and autistic people, their families and carers.
With three different streams to choose from, you can select the seminars that are most relevant to your daily work.
