Autism Awareness Workshop

This 'Hope for Autism' supported introductory workshop is designed to:

  • Raise your awareness of what is meant by 'autism'
  • Identify challenges you may be faced with
  • Look at ways to work with young autistic people who access your services
  • Where to access further information

We touch on aspects of the spectrum, challenges that may occur for each individual and help staff to be aware of how each young person may process information differently. 

Looking past the diagnosis and working with the young person you will learn how to identify what works for them and what doesn’t so that if a young person would like to attend or is already attending a youth service, the staff are able to create a beneficial and enjoyable experience.
