Autism Post Diagnosis Learning Programme

Receiving an autism (ASD) diagnosis for your child can evoke many different emotions. In some respects, you may feel relieved but equally overwhelmed and confused about what to do next.  

Our Autism Post-Diagnosis Learning Programme has been developed to guide you through your journey. As well as learning about how autism is experienced by children and young people, you'll explore strategies on how you can support your child so they can achieve their full potential.

The sessions will cover a range of useful topics:

 

Understanding autism  Communication skills
Discussing a diagnosis Promoting self-esteem
Autism and girls Talking about health 
Sensory processing differences Building positive relationships
Unique thought processes & special interests Educational settings: working together
