Autism & Sensory Differences

Autistic people experience sensory information in very unique ways, including over-sensitivity, under-sensitivity or poor modulation.  Whilst sensory differences can be enjoyable for autistic people, they can also cause significant distress in coping with daily life. This webinar explores sensory differences and strategies to create sensory-friendly environments.

Promoting Positive Behaviour

Who is challenging who? Behaviour that challenges is a form of communication - it's essential to identify what message an individual is sending and how we can respond in a supportive way.

This session will empower parents to identify the causes of behaviour that causes distress and improve wellbeing and quality of life not only for the autistic person but their family and people around them.
