Autism Learning Session

Autism: What does each child want you to know?

Online Learning Session - 13th December 2023, 10am

After delivering a very popular and well-received presentation at our last conference before COVID, we are pleased to welcome back autism expert, Jim Taylor who will be delivering an online learning session on Wednesday 13th December.

This session will explore how a more contemporary understanding of the learning styles and presentation of autistic children can have a positive impact in all types of settings. The session will acknowledge the pressures that may be encountered in meeting the needs of both autistic and non-autistic individuals in shared environments. The session will lead to a shared and more effective understanding of autism by exploring current thinking and will provide practical advice and guidelines that will lead to better outcomes for all.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.
